I was suffering from calf pain in February. Following a full blood count at GP, they found signs of clotting also slightly elevated white blood cell count. It turns out i had 2 DVT’s in my leg. My GP wanted to see me again 3 weeks after starting anti-coagulants. He took another FBC and again it has shown elevated white blood cell count. He told me to make an appointment for 4 weeks time and said that he was going to check my stomach. He asked if i had been unwell recently, any infections etc. I have been perfectly well apart from DVT pain.
I’ve convinced myself that it’s leukaemia of some sort. There are 4 small blood spots on my stomach and i keep getting a re-occuring skin infection.
I have 2 more weeks to wait and I feel sick with worry.
