You didn't mention your platelet count. Nosebleeds would not be an indication of Leukemia if your platelet count was normal. If it was caused by insufficent clotting, it would have to be in the clotting mechanism itself. Since you take a lot of medication, it could be that it is interupting one of the many cascading factors which lead to decent clotting. (For example, aspirin of any effective dosage will destroy a part of your clotting for up to 48 hours after you take it because it deactivates one of the clotting factors).

Of course you might also have a sinus infection.

All of your cellular counts seem high or at least on the high end of normal, but the reletive counts seem normal. Is it possible that you are dehydrated? If I remember correctly, that could also lead to nose bleeds.

One cannot really diagnoses a disease with a blood test alone, it more or less just gives you more symptoms (i.e. thrombocytepenia or too few platelets, sorry for the spelling). Your RBC numbers do not indicate a cause of your anemic symptoms, and since you are female, they are a bit high.

Probably the best thing to do is to not worry, and go to the appointment and await the results of whatever test you will get.
