Hi. I’m new here :). My sister was diagnosed with CLL a year and a half ago at age 34. She hasn’t had any noticeable symptoms except some fatigue, but her wbc have increased in the last few months, currently at 28,000. A few days ago she woke up with what looks like small burns along her spine, in 3 spots (2 upper back and 1 lower). She had also mentioned she had a headache on and off. She went to our family doctor and he didn’t seemed concerned. He was convinced that it was a wound from something external. She is now waiting a few days to see if any new spots appear before she visits her oncologist for an opinion. So far, no new spots. Seems that’s the spots are scabbing and itchy now. Anyone experience anything like this? I tend to worry but am trying to keep it to myself because I don’t want to show her that I am panicked in any way. I keep associating the scabs and the headache to something related to the central nervous system, and I’m not sure if that’s going to the extreme.
Any advice would be wonderful.
Thank you 😊
