Iron Transfusions-'Mystery Bleeder'

I have been bleeding internally from multiple organs for a very long time now-decades. When I was younger it was devastating but I had strenght and youth. Now i'm older and things have gotten worse. I see a hemotologist and I've been to John's Hopkins where they all failed to find the cause of my internal bleeding. Does anyone out there do this too???  I have been recieving iron tansfusions, at first they lasted a long time. The last time I used up all the iron in just over 10 months. At this rate I won't have fully recovered from one before i need another. Does anyone else have experience with iron transfusions???
