Expressing is not an accurate way to judge how much milk you're making.
The entire process is different and doesn't cause the release of the same hormones.
Breast milk is all about supply and demand. The more the demand, the bigger the supply. You just may be inefficient when expressing, but fine when baby is latched. If you have moved exclusively to expressing, the pumping may be telling your body *I don't need as much,* so your body is making less.
