Anemia means decreased ability of the blood to carry oxygen. Two examples are iron deficiency anemia and pernicious anemia due to impaired vitamin B12 absorption. You can have anemia and good circulation.
Poor circulation is a decreased ability of the circulatory system (heart and arteries) to deliver blood to all parts of the body. Examples of causes are heart failure, for example after heart attack, and hardening of arteries in the legs and arms (peripheral artery disease). You can have poor circulation without anemia.
