I'm Nancy, I'm 21 years old and new here. I've recently been diagnosed with a chronic myeloid leukaemia, I'm also anemic, vitamin D deficient and my amylase count is high (but not that high that it's worrying).
So I'm here to ask if any of you might have an idea of what I could have on top of this CML. I've been experiencing bad chest pain constantly on the right upper part of the abdomen, one of my organs around there just hurt like hell each time I breathe in deeply (feels like a knife is passing by my lung all the way underneath my ribs) or move the right side of my body. I have back pain as well, where the pain is And in the middle. Sometimes the back pain is constant for a few hours. But the chest pain has been constant for 5 days now.
The emergency doctor sent me home because he saw I could handle the pain but I'm still worried, sometimes it feels like it's burning and most times it's a sharp stabbing pain, I can't stretch, cant laugh/sneeze/cough/yawn/have a hic up without hurting. It started the night before I started my treatment.
I'm seeing my GP (to whom the emergency doctor referred me to so that he could investigate but ATM I'm still in pain and they cover it with pain killer), today, but it happened in the past but they said it was bacterial infections, now my blood is clear so no infections but no scans have been done. Sometimes I'm feverish and nauseous but I don't know whether they're the side effects of imatinib or associated with my chest pain.
Sorry I tried to shorten it lol, i have a lot going on! And apologies if I mispelled anything, I'm from France but I lived in the UK for 5/6 years now still not fluent but trying to be!😊
