    Hi Marla,
    Roll on next monday but knowing me i'll be examined and most likely no nothing as perusual.
    Well i've knocked the parcetamol on the head as they was'nt helping my pain plus the asprin and gone back to my iburophen and they've helped wonders with the pain and the blood slows down different times of the day then i have outburts again with the blood but i think coming of the asprin as helped me and it does'nt suit everyone.

    I realy hope your feeling ok [busy woman] you've got a lovely active live marla. Luv Terri xxx

    Hi Terri,

    I thought I'd share my recent experience with you regarding hemorrhaging. I got my period and was bleeding through a super plus tampon every hour for four days. It wouldn't slow down so my doctor advised me to go to the emergency room. When I got there they did a CBC and my platelet count was 10% of normal. It was so low the doctor thought the lab made a mistake so they ran the test again. It really was that low. Anyway, when your platelets are low your blood doesn't clot as well as it should and you are prone to bleeding. Do you bruise easily or have little purple dots on your skin? Those are symptoms of low platelets. Maybe this is something you can mention to your doctor.

    -Hugs, Erika

    Hi Erika,
    I'm bleeding through super plus tampon's but my bleeding turns to hemorrhaging and lasts up to 2mths at a time and the only breaks i have, have been a few days and the most it's stretched to as been 2wks. 9yrs ago i had megaloblastic anemia and my reading was 8.0 and took me realy ill plus i had all the bruises bad and i was always classed as on the border line but not to the extend of a re-boosting but when i first saw the rheumatology specialist i told him that they was coming back ok, he said no they're not in the lab they've got them at 8.0 and 9.0 and they've been taking bloods at the hospital and it's said i was an anemic again and within a minute of re-testing i was'nt but now they've found out i've definitely to anemia and i'm on folic acid tablets for life now 5mg a day but i've seen a gyno in the meantime and if you look for my thread,
    [Gyno appointment today about blood loss] it will tell you what happened on that day and what they're doing, i've got to have a scan on the 17th December and in the meantime i'm waiting for Dr Vanner to make an appointment for me to go back for the results and then the next stage, i can tell you i dow need it with what else is going on, i'm as weak as a kitten and doubled up with pain in my joints and organs as mine as gone that far now, it's all a nightmare.

    Love Terri xxx

    P.S my eldest sister is called erica. lol

    Default blood loss

    I went through a severe blood loss. The doctor's couldn't it figure out. Even though I would tell them where I knew I was bleeding from... they said that it was an impossiablity. Well to make a long story short, the onset of blood loss will make your body hurt and worse no energy to do anything mean time your thiniking its the Lupus which it is however blood loss puts it in hyper drive. The last day my body said no more I ended up with severe chest pain I would go as far as saying it felt like I was having a heart attack. I was rushed to the hosiptal, they said no heart attack...but your cbc count was down to 7.0 and dropping. I ended up with a blood transfussion and now animea that i can't seem to recover from, I have had iron infussion, that helped a little, and also suffer an excessive amount of hair loss. From what I read it said it take 3 months for your blood to stabllize and see an improvement, which I did but it only jumped to 9.0 better than nothing right. So keep an eye on your blood loss it can be very dangerous i was told once you drop 6.0 your then fighting for your life.

    Hi 2pinkhearts,
    They've found out my anemia is back and have put me on folic acid tablets for life i've had it drop as low as 8.0 and my god i was ill, i've got no energy now at all and they've ran urine samples for infection, scans and they've come back clear, no dropped womb either and i do get terrible pain by my left ovary which shoots pain to my navel and they've done a biopsy and i go back the 17th of jan to see what comes of that and they've given me the option of either the coil being fitting or a new op where your uterus it burned out and 80% of women don't see again, so at the moment i'm just waiting but it realy drags you down and trying to cope with my epilepsey besides the lupus it's a wonder i'm not mentally disturbed completley having manic depression to add to it all, i really broke down crying bad in the gyno's office but i know how you feel and they have'nt got a clue where it's coming from but they have said if i choose the operation they're going to put a camera in my navel to also check me out that way also.

    Thanks for getting back to me and look after yourself also.

    Terri xxx
