I’m writing for advice really. I was a nurse so have a little knowledge (not of CLL)
Without wanting to sound like a hypochondriac I am a little worried.
I’m 38 years old. Basically I’ve been having a few non specific symptoms for a while now.
My youngest is 1 and since his birth I have had drenching night sweats on and off. I put this down to hormonal changes. For a few months I have been having regular nose bleeds. Dr said it was a sore in my nose. I have never ever had a UTI but about a month ago I had a day of passing blood. Later diagnosed as a uti. I often feel tired but every couple of weeks I find I have to go to bed for a whole weekend. I put this down to having young kids and the emotional draining effect it can have. I have a bad back and have noticed a lot more joint type pains and the dull ache in my lower spine is constantly there.
Now I am developing severe insect bites which are incredibly itchy. No one else in our home is being bitten. We have no animals so it can’t be fleas.
I just don’t feel right. I’m not usually one to worry about my health. I’m pretty fit and slim anyway but I have noticed I seem to be able to eat anything without gaining weight.
I have made another drs appointment but I think they will fob me off because of my age etc.
Any advice what to say to the drs about my symptoms do they listen or reassurance this is probably nothing would be great!
