I bruise very easily and have been anemic for quite some time. Do you think it's pretty normal?

November 13, 2019 / By Gaddiel Question:
I have migraines on and off. I also had a test once (while in the hosp. to have a baby) where they cut my arm to see how long it would take my blood to clot. It took evidently longer than it should have. I had to go home and take steroids for a couple days. I am tired a lot, but chalk it up to life. I'm not a hypochondriac, I promise. I just hate going to the doctor. Thanks for giving me your thoughts! :)
I was told I was anemic at every pregnancy (5). I don't take any kind of medication, including aspirin.

I advise you to get an AA count. It sounds to me like you have an autoimmune disease. I would go to the doctors and ask them what they thought and ask them to run an autoimmune disease profile and see what they find. I really hope this helps! To me it kind of sounds like Lupus.. But have it checked out!

I had those pains too and i definitely could not eat! a lot of it has to do with the fact that your insides are just raw from child birth. if its really bad it wouldn't hurt to call your nurse. don't feel like you're bothering them either that's their job. if it makes you feel any better when i was pregnant i called my nurse at least twice a week from my second trimester on! so don't worry about it, your best bet is to just call. a nurse can give you better assurance than i can. :) congrats by the way!
If you are anemic then you will bruise very easy. Diabetics bruise easy also. Follow your Doctors orders and rest. You'll be be Ok enjoy your life for life is very short. Do not let any illness put you down.
People she said she was tested in the hospital and had to take medication for it. (READ her question)

i'm no longer particular yet, if I were you i ought to bypass see your relatives clinical professional and performance a blood try executed to ensure if you're or are not. The bruising would properly be lack of particular minerals alongside with ones latest in greens. The dizzy spells would properly be that your dehydrated. The sleep issue in spite of the undeniable fact that, look commonly used on your age. attempt to drink extra water, devour extra end result and greens, and take iron supplementations.

if your blood is very thin, you will bruise easier. are you taking blood thinners, or aspirin daily? that could be a reason. other than that, are you bumping into too many things? if you hate going to a doctor, but you have all these medical problems, you are going to have to suck it up and start going, aren't you?

"Easy" bruising and anemia are certainly not normal.
How do you know you are anemic?
The test you mentioned is notoriously unreliable, so forget it.
Afraid you're gonna have to see a doctor if you want a fix for your problems.

Originally Answered: I always seem to get sick, yet all my tests come out normal, immune system/bloodwork normal too. Help!?
There are so many variables its impossible to answer your particular question with being a professional and even they don't have all the answers.
I used to get sick once a year, every year for 40 year with the flu. For certain. I was not sickly, but got the flu and was sick 7-10 days each year.
Now I am 56, drink much too heavily and drink from 375-750 (26 oz) of Rum every day, yet I NEVER get sick. I have not had the flu or even a real cold since 1998. No doubt my liver is probably toast and I might not make it past 70, but now I feel great.
So, go figure. We cant answer your question. Maybe its diet. There seems to be way more people now with allergy problems than 50 years ago. Good luck.
