How does hemorrhaging affect the body?

Hemorrhaging caused by the disorders that prevent the formation of blood clots can affect the body in many ways. How the body is affected may depend on the type of disorder and the extent to which the body is able to form blood clots that stop bleeding. Bleeding can occur externally or internally. Excessive external bleeding may cause unexplained bruises and bleeding on the skin, excessive nosebleeds, and too much bleeding from a small injury. Excessive internal bleeding may cause bleeding in the internal organs, joints, and brain, causing muscle and joint pain and headaches.
