Fatigue/bleeding: Anemia is low red blood cells. These cells give energy. Common symptoms when they are low are fatigue, headache, malaise. Thrombocytopenia is low platelets. This cells are important in clotting. Symptoms when platelets are low include nosebleeds, gum bleeding, heavy periods. Of course the symptoms may vary depending on what causes these cells to be low.
