There are many things that can cause anemia besides iron, vit B12 def or bleeding. You definitely should have further evaluation to find the cause. ...Read more

I had a pericardial window 4 years ago(pericarditis,pericardial effusion/tampenade -1 liter blood ). Could chronic pericarditis cause frequent anemia?
