I have a huge knack for getting worried a lot. I am worried I may have something wrong me me. I noticed on my chest a bunch of little dots, kind of a rash, I would not really call them dots. I have a bruise on my arm from my dog bitting me(while playing), I always let my dog bite me and never any bruises. I also noticed that when I poped a zit a few days back there is now a bruise there, and there is a bruise on my leg, not a big one but I can't remember how I got it. I am not tired I am kinda sick but the flew is going around my school. I still have lots of energy. I am also losing weight I think, but all my brothers lost a lot of weight around my age (16). Please tell me I am worried over nothing. Also I am not even feeling that sick, and dont have a fever or anything. I also notice I am very pale, but I have been always pale my hole life, but it seems to have gotten a little worse kuz I can see more veins in my arm and hands.
For how long you have the bruise?
Do the small dots disappear when you press on them?
Its my 8th day with the bruise and it is just about gone. I never tried pushing on the dots but they are also gone now. I have another problem, i seem to be bleeding weird. I pushed down on my gum and it started to bleed, I have always had trouble with them bleeding but not this easy. My joints are kinda in pain, can you explain how bad the pain is with the joints with leukimea. Leukemia does not run in my family, and with all other cancers. and I have always been healthy
Two weeks is a normal period for bruises to disappear.
All of the symptoms, you are mentioning, can be due to leukemia (these are not sure signs of leukemia), but, it could be just you worrying too much.
I don't wanna give conclusions, and, you should stop worrying, until you get a regular blood count test.
Do you find swollen lymph nodes, especially in the neck or armpit?
Do you feel swelling or discomfort in the left upper part of abdomen (loss of appetite)?
Are you experiencing fevers or night sweats?
Do you have headache?
Have you noticed difficulty breathing?
No to all of those. I calmed myself down, because if I was sick I would be SICK. I would prob be tired and fluish. I am fine, I am going to school and playing video games like a normal teen I think its reading all of these messages that worry me, I don't know what it is that makes me come here, but every time I get scared. I have none of those symptoms. I have a discomfort in my LOWER left ribcage, where my colon is but its hardly noticable and its not where my spleen is, I could be from hunching my back a lot. They need a warning on these on not to take these threads as medical advice (like me) you cant confirm anything unless a doctor says so. I figured that my "rashes" were due to me wearing a t-shirt that I got my hair got while wearing and the hair gave me a rash, that goes away after a couple days. My cuts heal fine, and I have an appetite I have 1 question tho: Is leukemia the same as bone cancer? I know a friend whos dog had bone cancer I was wondering if it was the same. Thanks for all the advice! The only thing that I am experiencing is some blood in my nose. It is spring time and everyone has dry noses, and its not dripping down, just when I stick a cleenex up there there is blood, and its not there when my nose is not runny. Thanks once again for the advice!
