Symptoms of Pernicious anemia

Symptoms of Pernicious anemia: Introduction

The symptoms of pernicious anemia can vary amongst individuals, depending on the cause, the severity of anemia, and other factors.

Direct symptoms of pernicious anemia are due to a lack of red blood cells, which are vital to carrying oxygen to the cells of the body. Symptoms can include pale skin, shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness, headache, cold hands and feet, heart palpitations, and chest pain.

There are also often symptoms that are due to a lack of vitamin B12. Untreated vitamin B12 deficiency can affect the nervous system and result in permanent nerve damage. Symptoms can include numbness and tingling in the hands and feet, unsteadiness, difficulty walking, confusion, depression, memory loss, and dementia.
