RHEMAS DISEASE ( PAINFUL AND SWELLING LIMBS)
I AM 28 YEARS OLD, LAST YEAR I LOST MY UTERUS DUE TO POSTPARTUM HAEMORRHAGE. LATER IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT I HAVE RHAMAS DISEASE (JUST NOT SURE ABOUT THE SPELLING) THE BONES ON MY LEGS AND ARMS PAIN MOST OF THE TIMES AND MY LEGS WOULD SWELL.

WHAT i WANT TO KNOW IS: COULD HAVE THIS DESEASE CAUSE THE HAEMORRHAGE, AS I WAS TOLD THE BLOOD WOULD NOT CLOT? PLEASE HELP

I am not familiar with Rhemas disease. Postpartum haemorrahge is usually due to the uterus not contracting properly, rather than problems with blood clotting.
