What are hemolytic anemia symptoms?

What are hemolytic anemia symptoms?

Hemolytic symptoms can be mild or more severe. They also can come on suddenly or develop over time. Typical symptoms include: Jaundice: This condition affects your skin, the whites of your eyes (sclera) and your mucous membranes, causing them to turn yellow. This happens when you have a high level of bilirubin caused by a breakdown of your red blood cells. Shortness of breath (dyspnea): This happens when you don’t have enough red blood cells carrying oxygen throughout your body. Fatigue: Fatigue is a sensation of being so tired that it affects your daily life and your ability to do your daily activities. Fast heartbeat (tachycardia): This condition means your heart is beating faster than it should. When your heart beats too fast, it doesn’t have enough time between beats to fill up with blood, and your heart can’t supply your body with the oxygen it needs. Low blood pressure (hypotension): Low blood pressure can be a symptom or a condition. It happens when your blood pressure is much lower than expected. Blood in your pee (hematuria): This can be a symptom of sickle cell disease. Enlarged spleen or liver: Your liver and spleen filter red blood cells as the cells move through your body. Red blood cells that are damaged or dying are trapped by your spleen and liver, which destroy the cells. A larger-than-normal spleen or liver may be a sign your red blood cells are damaged.
