Weakness: Anemia is a lack of hemoglobin in the blood. There is less oxygen delivered to tissues and this causes symptoms like weakness, fatigue, feeling lightheaded or dizzy and feeling cold. Anemia is not a full diagnosis, as there are many causes, and it is the cause that is most important. With the diagnosis understood, most anemias can be treated. There are many possible causes. Good luck.
