Has your doctor recommended any sort of treatment or surgery for your fibroids?  It sounds like you might be bleeding pretty heavily, and 8-10 days is also a long time to bleed.  It makes sense from that for you to be anemic.  I'd definitely want to check in with your doctor, and if s/he doesn't want to pursue any treatment I might want a second opinion.
