I don't know if this was a logical place to post but I did not know where else to go. My daughter has been sick for over a year and no one knows what it could be. These have been her symptoms: hold and cold flashes, headaches, weakness, tiredness, dull throbbing pains in her arms, not hungry or finding food appealing then being starving but feeling sick if she eats, and re occurring illness in july she had surgery and ever since then she has been sick back to back first with a cold, then with hand foot mouth virus, then another cold, then a potential sinus infection. I was doing unrelated research on leukemia and as I read through the symptoms and many are ones she has been experiencing. I am not a hypochondriac or one to jump to conclusions but it did to me seem odd that she has gone this long with no answers and for her symptoms to fit so closely. The one test that has not been preformed is a blood test. Does anyone knowledgeable about this disease have any advice or anything to put my mind at ease?
hey there. How old is your daughter? Mine is 6 and has had leukamia for one year. Anyways, I found out through a blood test and she had all the same symphonts that your daughter has so get her to the doctor and get her a blood test asap! The sooner you find out the problem, the better. Good luck!
Hi, sally. I am an adult woman and I have leukemia. Be there for your daughter especially now that she's sick.
Go to the best oncologist you can. Her treatment will make a tremendous difference.
Talk to your family doctor about her condition as well.
Don't put off an appointment with your family doctor or with an oncologist. Do it as soon as next week!!
God bless you and your daughter.
Hi sally,im 35 & I have similar symptons as your daughter my blood test came back with white cell count high im due for another test tomorrow,then I wait a week for the results,nobody has mentioned leukemia to me as its only early days,but unfortunly it keeps popping into my head my best friend died of it when she was 15,so im a little scared at moment. 1 week till I know more but im so tired which I have been for 1 year and always feel like im comen down with a cold, well hopefully ive just got an infection of some sort I wish your daughter well let me know how she goes good luck

I know the best thing is to go to a doctor, but I have been living outside the states for 7 months, and that is not the most easy option for me now. I was in russia for 6 months and now in norway for the last 1 1/2, and will be here until october. Now, 2 months before I left the us, I have been exhuasted beyond belief. I never feel rested, and it kicks my butt to do too much physical activity. I have joint pain often, nose bleeds occasionally and bleeding from my rectum, and just now, I am getting a little pain in my abdomn and in my lower back. I feel dizzy at times. The worst part of it is that I am a 22 year old male, and I should be in top condition! What could this possible be, cancer? Somthing else? I do not go to the doctor often, I do not like to, but I am concerned enough now to start some research...Can you help me with anythought or advise?
