Anaemia is a condition in which concentration of haemoglobin is below the lower limit of normal range for the age and sex of the individual. Anaemia may be mild or severe. Mild anaemia causes weakness, fatigue, paleness, irritability and drowsiness. Concentration and learning ability may be impaired. More severe anaemia may cause shortness of breath and chest pain.
