Hi, I was looking for information/forums on leukemia and came across these boards. I do not know if I have this yet, but my dr says that after my next blood tests (on November 11) if my WBC is high he will start other tests for leukemia. I'm a bit confused though because I was under the impression from looking at numerous websites and forums that your WBC needs to be very high or very low to have leukemia? I thought I would put my symptoms and latest FBC results on here and see if anyone has any idea...

Very fatigued
Petichae on upper arms and shoulders mostly but also on lower arms, couple on legs, one or 2 on stomach (dr says not to worry about these until they 'rash')
sore left arm which sometimes radiates to bottom of left shoulder blade
sore and clicky right knee
sore ribs - back and front
feeling of fullness under ribs - right and left
have also noticed just today that I have white spots, slightly larger than petichae, mainly my legs and arms

FBC: (normal ranges given in brackets)
Haemoglobin 133 (115-160)
Red Cell Count 4.5 (3.6-5.2)
Haematocrit 0.39 (0.33-0.46)
Mean Cell Volume 86 (80-98)
Mean Cell Haemoglobin 30 (27-35)
Platelet Count 213 (150-450)
White Cell Count 10.7 (4.0-11.0)
Neutrophils 51% 5.5 (2.0-7.5)
Lymphocytes 38% 4.1 (1.1-4.0)
Monocytes 8% 0.9 (0.2-1.0)
Eosinophils 3% 0.32 (0.04-0.40)
Basophils 0% 0.00 (< 0.21)

White cell count in last FBC one month ago was higher but I dont know the exact values of that because I don't have that copy of results. WBC are within normal limits the only thing that isn't is lymphocytes and only just although one or two others are at the higher end of the normal. Don't really understand why dr would mention leukemia (dependant on next blood tests) Does anybody else know why? Kinda freaking me out a little bit :-)
