Dear Zee
You probably have an anemia (too little red blood cells in the body) this can be due to Iron deficiency, vit B deficiency, or because the bone marrow is not making enough blood cells. Your doctor should do testing to determine the cause or refer you to a specialist as this can and should be treated as soon as possible as it is curable in almost all cases.
