I was told I had CLL at the age of 35 (am now43) while being ivestigated for migraines! Bit of a shock to say the least, particularly when I was told and read that it is a leukaemia usually found in older people and more typically in men. Managed to survive so far without any major deterioration to my health - have a couple of enlarged lymph nodes in my neck and my counts are on the increase - although nothing of interest as my hemotologist says!. I still manage to work full time in a stressful job teaching, and I have managed to stay relatively fit and healthy - have been suffering from cold uticaria for about two years - awful hives when I get cold (even in August!). My hemotologist was unsure whether this had any link to the CLL or whether I am just a sensitive soul. Would love to hear from any of you who are in a similar situation to me
