|I do. I'm in front of a computer 70% of my day. In addition to my daily bruising, I now have a bruise bigger than my hand on my thigh that came out of no where with no incident.
The waiting around for my bone marrow biopsy is driving me crazy.
|3 weeks ago I went to the doctor to get meds for a sinus infection that I had had for a month. I told her about my bruising (approximately 50+ all over my body) and I work in an office with little exposure to injury with my lifestyle. I also explained how tired I am all of the time. She ran a few tests CBC showed platelets at 66,000, WBC borderline low, and RBC borderline low. Thyroid, B12, liver, and kidneys are good, and ANA was negative.
I constantly have a general pain through my body down to the bone, and a very stiff neck the past few weeks. She put me on Doxcycline for sinus infection, but two weeks later I got sick again with terrible sore throat, earaches, weird headaches, and swollen gland. The most concerning change lately has been strange memory loss and confusion.
I have met with a hematologist-oncologist and I have a bone marrow biopsy scheduled in two weeks (when my insurance becomes effective) but I still won't have results for another week after that.
Does this sound like Leukemia? I feel like I've ruled everything else out and that maybe I should begin preparing myself for this diagnoses.
