Have I Got Leukemia ?

Postby ohanko » Sat Sep 30, 2017 10:06 pm

Here are the symptoms i have;

extreme tiredness

abdominal pain

upper stomach pain ( i don't know if that counts as abdominal pain but never mind )

bad headaches

joint pain


pins and needles

chest pain ( under breast )

i've had blood tests done.. but haven't got the results back yet. Supposed to have them soon though. I'm just afraid that they think that i've just got a virus , and not recognise that i have cancer !

Oh and one more question..
can they recognise if i have leukemia by blood tests ? i've always wondered that.

Sorry if i sound stupid and paranoid.. but it's bugging me.

Have I Got Leukemia ?

Postby Reilley » Sat Sep 30, 2017 10:08 pm

There are several types of leukemia.

I am a CLL leukemia survivor, which is an adults blood cancer.

I had a pain in my left side for several weeks before being diagnosed that turned out to be a swollen spleen because of a super high white blood count.
Found by a blood test.

My other symptoms were being tired a lot, and night sweats.

Do not freak out about anything until you get the results back from your doctor tho.

Here is a great website to check out for more information

Good Luck http://www.leukemia-lymphoma.org/

It doesn't sound like you have leukemia. Most of the symptoms of leukemia are bruising, bleeding for no apparent reason,tiredness, headaches, I had leukemia and was almost dead before they even found it. And I think there is something besides leukemia going on here. The blood tests will tell what is wrong or should. The only 2 symptoms I see that you have are the headaches and the tiredness. So I don't see that you have it

Ask your doctors. They will take care of you. Diagnosing stuff can be very very tricky.

Hope all works out. Take care, god bless
