I posted a question regarding bleeding internally, but did not expound on what already has been done. A scope has been put down throat and there is no bleeding in this area. There is no blood in the stool. However feel like could sleep at any time. Am on iron pills because of low iron and do have an appointment with a specialist. But am eager to find out what might be causing loss of blood. Recently donated plasma because prior to tests was feeling good. Wondering if giving blood could have caused this to happen again.

I doubt very much that you giving blood had much to do with this. Almost sounds like a B-12 deficeincy.

Did your doctor check your iron levels before you started the iron pills to do a comparison?

I agree with MsCarrie it might be your B-23 deficient, if that's the case you may need B-12 shots as most people who are B-12 deficient their body is unable to absorb the pills. There is usually an underlying cause for lack of B-12 which can be found a special set of blood tests.

My mom is loosing blood internally her stool is black & they did a speciman and said she had blood in her stool , her blood count is 5 which I know is very low & they have give her 3 pints of blood in 2 days. They ran the scope down to her stomach & up her rectum but didnt see anything, where else could she be loosing it from?
