i have been getting colds farily often over the past six months, and have been tired pretty much the whole time, and with body aches and pains. Ive had 4 blood tests over the period and all 4 showed increased lymphocytes, even for the one when i wasnt feeling sick. Ive now had two chest infections in the past 3 months, one was quite bad. My doctor doesnt think that this is all related, however things are only getting worse and recently ive started bruising very easily, mostly on my legs. i have several large dark bruises even though i havent hurt myself. I also have 30-40 small lighter bruises on my legs and also some on my arms. This all seems to have started since i had surgery to reconstruct my wrist (may be purely coincidental).

Im starting to think that this is all in my head, as the doctors seem so dismissive. However, i knew something was wrong with my wrist (it needed reconstruction) and was constantly dismissed by different doctors over it.

i KNOW something is up, and im tired of being told that it isnt all related. If anyone could offer some insight it would be great, as this is now effecting my university marks.
