How much blood does everyone lose during a flare?! I know its hard to judge!
I'm wondering if I'm anaemic, for example - after walking the dogs for 20 - 30 mins, I am tired and light headed when I return home, and need to sit down for a while to 'recover'. I have been losing varying amounts of blood most days for the past year however my blood tests have always come back fine, and the past 2/3 weeks alot has been literally dripping out and also mixed in with mucous and stool several times a day. I am due to go into hospital on Friday for 7 - 10 days for different medication so I'm sure they will do another blood test then, but I just wondered...?!
