If you are anemic and have a high resting heart rate, you could possibly need a blood transfusion, if you are bleeding. I have been through it more times that I care to remember. Also, if you are anemic, I would not exercise due to the possible clumping of blood cells which could cause an clot (this could have killed me). Please follow up with your Dr. and get labs drawn again. I would also stay away from salted drinks, but drink plenty of water.
