Z,

Your symptoms may have many causes and I'm not the correct person to ask for an diagnosis. Refer your question to cyberdoc or if possible, consult your doctor for a proper diagnosis.
In general - Aemia is a condition with decreased red blood cells, too few white blood cells is leukopenia, and too few platelets is thrombocytopenia. Anemia causes fatigue, weakness, and paleness; Leukopenia causes increased susceptibility to infection and thrombocytopenia causes easy bruising and bleeding.
