Anemia occurs in many types, but the main symptom of most anemias is fatigue. That's true for vitamin deficiency anemias, which can also result in:

  • Pale skin
  • Sore mouth and tongue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Loss of appetite
  • Diarrhea
  • Numbness or tingling in your hands and feet
  • Muscle weakness
  • Mental confusion or forgetfulness

Vitamin deficiencies usually develop slowly, over several months to years. Vitamin deficiency symptoms may be subtle at first, but they increase as the deficiency worsens.
