Anemia refers to a medical condition when a patient doesn’t have enough healthy red blood cells in order to carry the proper amount of oxygen throughout his/her body. Anemia comes in many forms. For example, some people who deal with certain conditions such as sickle cell anemia or thalassemia, are actually anemic from birth. The explanation is quite simple: due to their medical family history, their bodies can not produce enough red blood cells or have a difficulty in doing so.

In some cases, this medical condition can be caused by a B12 vitamin deficiency. However, nearly 3 million Americans suffer from iron-deficiency anemia, says Marc J. Kahn, MD, the Peterman-Prosser professor and senior associate dean at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans.

Read on to find out the overlooked symptoms of anemia.
