The chances are that you are anemic (low red blood cell count and hemoglobin). These are the oxygen carrying components of our blood. When hemoglobin is low from ongoing blood loss, less oxygen is delivered to our organs and cells and the heart has to pump faster to make up for it- it is a natural reflex, a response to the anemia.
