Sure doesn't sound like Leukemia to me? At least not the type I have. Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) is a blood cancer that affects your Lymphnodes and will show up first as a high White Blood Count (WBC). I felt nothing except for a little tiredness that I wrote off as working too much. A routine blood test back in January showed a WBC of 30.6 (3.8-10.8 is the normal range). A bone marrow biopsy confirmed CLL. My WBC increased to 40.2, 53.1, 93.3, 117.7 as well as swelling of the Lymphnodes in my neck, armpits, and groin. I started Chemo on 11/7 and things are calming down now. Lymphnodes are shrinking and WBC is coming down!
I'm sorry I can't be of more help with your question. Ask your Dr. to do a CT scan and maybe a PET scan to help diagnose the pain you're experiencing.
Best of luck & smile, it helps!

I Had a urinary tract infection & my blood wbc count was 19,000 and even after the infection went away well my doctor is very particular & just wants to make sure sending me to a hemotologist to just get everything checked out . I Get blood taken every 3 months for the last 11 years and always fine & the differential white blood cells are fine he says . this hapened 5 years ago when i had an infection a different doctor then just kept taking my blood & it went done eventually after infection was gone. This doctor is different. How are you doing with treatment? and is the outlook good? Its good to hear good stories. Bren.I Go to my hemotologist next tuesday I'm a little no a lot Anxious.
