In brief: Fatigue

I liken it to flashlight working on low batteries.
... So fatigue, lack of endurance are the usual manifestations.

In brief: Anemia symptoms

Fatigue/feeling weak is the most common symptom of anemia.
If anemia is severe enough-also can cause some difficulty in breathing especially with activities. Other symptoms that can present pica- craving of unusual stuff/food- eg- ice cubes, baking soda, paint chips etc., restless leg is associated with iron deficiency. Numbness/tingling/memory problem can happen in vitamin B12 deficiency. Etc.
