TIREDNESS&FATIGUE :-





Fatigue tiredness is most common symptom of anemia .Because of lack  of red blood cells in blood that cause decreased supply of hemoglobin to body tissues 
             
 Lack of oxygen and muscles in tissues that leads to lowers energy and that may cause tiredness and weakness. The low oxygen levels requires effort for the heart for the functioning of body.

This tiredness fatigues may vary from busy lifestyle and iron deficiency anemia.

PALENESS :-
