This morning I had what seemed like allergic reaction - except I can't think of any possible cause. I dropped the kids to school, came home, had my usual breakfast and was getting ready to go to work when my face felt really really hot. I looked in the mirror and my head was like a giant tomato, I was puce. I also had blotchy red patches all down my arms, chest and upper back. My GP couldn't see me so I took myself to my local hospital who checked me out and couldn't find any possible cause. They ran bloods and said my lymph count has increased slightly, however I am lucky enough to be able to say it has increased to 11, as this is low I was hoping it's not CLL related. I'm stage 0 watch and wait (though I suppose to I might be bumped up to stage 1 as I'm getting night sweats and have swollen nodes in my neck).
Anyway I've been sent home to find some xirtex with no solutions. They did call my haemotologists team who are running some cytogenetics tests now. I'm due to see the haemotologist on Tuesday anyway.
Has anybody else experienced this kind of thing? I would be very grateful for any advice or anecdotes.
