    The symptoms of anemia include fatigue, weakness, dyspnea etc. These three symptoms are caused by the reduced amount of oxygen reaching the tissues. I could understand why fatigue and weakness occur, but what is the mechanism behing dyspnea? Does it occur due to oxygen deficiency in the respiratory center in the brain stem or something else…someone please explain.

    It is a feeling triggered by tissues due to reduce oxygenation of it.
