Thank you for this site. I've been reading some of the posts about night sweats and they all made me feel better.
My diagnosis began at a community health fair. A friend and I decided we would have our blood drawn because "the price was right". I received a call a week later asking me to call my primary doctor about my blood results. I didn't think much about it and forgot, but had back issues a few weeks later and went to the doctor after work. I was told that my white blood count was high and they wanted me to see an oncologist. My thought at the time..."Not me..."
I took my daughter with me and we were told I had CLL.
The thing I've noticed the most? I'm way more tired than normal, I just need more rest. Also, if I get sick, it's way worse than it used to be before CLL.
