5) Anemia

Anemia is reported as a common condition in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Anemia is defined as a lack of hemoglobin carrying oxygen due to a decrease in the number of red blood cells (RBCs). Anemia is manifested with frequent dizziness and continuous fatigue. It is believed that anemia in RA patients is resulted in long-term inflammation, as chronic inflammation interferes with red blood cell production in bone marrow leading to declining in their count.
