If all your CBC's are coming back normal, then I would stop worrying about having leukemia. :) It was suggested that you check out the fibromyalgia board. I don't know if you did or not, but here are the symptoms of fibro:

PAIN
The characteristic pain of Fibromyalgia is a diffuse achiness. It is poorly localized and is perceived to be in the muscles, joints, nerves, and bones. Patients complain that they hurt all over and feel as if they have the "flu". Common areas for pain are the neck, shoulders, hips and low back.

EXTREME FATIGUE
The fatigue of Fibromyalgia is hard to describe to someone who has not experienced it. Again the analogy of the feeling of fatigue that accompanies a viral illness such as the "flu" can be used. Exhaustion following minimal activity is common. People with Fibromyalgia wake up tired and they get more tired during the day. Fatigue is exacerbated by even normal activity and by stress.

HEADACHE
The headache of Fibromyalgia may range from a muscle tension headache that is 'just there' most of the day to debilitating migraine accompanied by nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, and noise sensitivity.

IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME

BLADDER PROBLEMS

SLEEP DISTRUBANCE
This can include trouble falling asleep, trouble staying asleep, early morning awakening, and non-restorative sleep (waking up unrefreshed).
