Are these symptoms enough to worry about Leukemia?
« on: February 17, 2014, 10:18:06 AM »
Crazy as always... even if my night sweats stopped. :)

This Saturday I noticed I have 2 small bruises on my tongue (one close to the tip and one on the side, both on the left side). On Saturday & Sunday it actually hurt around that area, like I bit my tongue, but I don't remember doing that. Perhaps in my sleep? Today it's still bluish but the pain is almost gone.

I started freaking about about leukemia or other cancer of the blood (is there any other? I can't keep track of all of them).

I also noticed I have some vague bruises on my knees... none of them is bluish, they're all greenish or brownish. They were never bluish. I guess I've always bruised easily on my knees but now I'm a bit more obsessed. I looked around my body and didn't find any other bruises.

I did find something on my forehead, like a vaguely darker thin area of skin that MIGHT be a bruise but it's... thin and practically I'm not sure if it's a bruise. It could be a bruise I guess, but it doesn't hurt.

For the last 2 months I've been having bleeding gums, usually when I brush my teeth. I've had bleeding gums before as well, but now it's a bit worse. I do have plaque and I admit sometimes I forget to brush my teeth and skip a day (yes, horrible! :) ). HOWEVER, around 2-3 weeks before my bleeding gums became worse (basically 3 months ago), I had a complete blood count and everything was absolutely perfect.

I did have some mild but frequent night sweating but it seemed to have stopped after taking vitamin D supplements (my doctor suggested them). They stopped suddenly and haven't had them for 4 days now.

I don't have fevers... & I'm not really more tired than usual now. I was more tired last week but I was having insomnia and sleeping like crap.

Does any of this sound like leukemia or cancer or am I being NUTS again?

Thank you, Hypo!

It's really gotten me obsessed... again...

I realized when re-reading my post that I sound like a lunatic, because I have really minor symptoms. But I really need, very badly need to hear that they don't sound like leukemia. :(

They don't sound like leukemia at all. I wouldn't even suggeat to go to doctor since I don't see any reason to do that now.

Just wanted to add I thought the pain around the bruise area on my tongue was gone yesterday... but it was back again last night, and I'm pretty sure I didn't bite it...
It hurts on the surface as well like it was burnt or bit. And the bruises still haven't started to fade although this is day 4... is this weird in any way? How long does it take a bruise to disappear?

Tongue cancer doesn't present like this I assume? I have no growth/bump and it all started rather suddenly.
