I came up with a large purple bruise about 5 weeks ago and at this point I wasn’t feeling great so I googled and instantly thought I had leukemia, the bruise faded quickly but I slowly started to experience other symptoms of leukemia , I had a fever and stomach pain which sent me to a&e , they did blood tests and everything was fine, but found a Uti. I then went to my doctors to have more blood tests and they found glandular fever in a positive mono spot test but further EBV tests showed i couldnt have had mono. after this I was still scared to death and convinced my self the mono spot was a false positive and it was leukemia that was making me feel ill so I paid for a private blood test, the results came back normal for this but I am still scared as my gums bleed easily sometimes and I have small red blood spots on my arms chest and legs. I have days where im feeling ok and others where i dont feel myself. Can anyone one give reassurance or hasn’t anyone experienced anything similar !
