So a copule months back, my cousin of 22 died of leukemia suddenly. she didn't know about it till the last moment. a few days later one of my professors died of leukemia as well. same with him, the only symptom with him was that he had a persistent fever and nothing else. he realised it was cancer at the last moment. at the time all i felt was upset for this people for dying so young but didn't pay it that much attention. but recently i started having extreme joint paint and fever. my ESR was 82 and i had a slighltly high uric acid level and high ASO level. after the doctor prescribed antibiotics for my joint pain, i started having chest pain as a side effect. but now i constantly wonder if i have blood ancer or a heart disease. my parents exasperated by me, went to another doctor who said that i was just going through an anxiety disorder. the recent deaths had scared me more than i thought. he prescribed anxiety medications but i have my exams goin on and anxiety medication makes you sleepy so i am unable to take it. so i just wanted to ask, is my breathing problems really due to anxiety. the doctor after doing a physical check up said i was fine. he is considered to be a genius in his field but still can you know if you have cancer or a heart disease just by physical exam. and also my ESR is 82 but the doctor said it was because of my tonsilitis. does tonsilitis cause such high ESR or should i be worried?
