In brief: Anemia
Weakness, tiredness, sometimes shortness of breath, pale skin, pale membranes in the mouth, and nail bed duskiness - these are common changes with anemia, and become worse as the severity of the anemia gets worse.
Make a plan with your physician on how you are going to correct the anemia.
