Hey everyone,

I have small red dots all over my body. They are single and pretty spread out, not clumped together like most petechaie. They are not cherry angiomas, which has been figured out by their small size and rate of appearance (in about a week several will appear).

Along with the small red spots, my skin has been very pale lately, with a yellow and pink tint to it in places (probably just due to the paleness).

Also, my skin has been very slow to heal, sometimes not properly or completely healing for small cuts and wounds.

Along with these problems, my energy has been very very low on a consistent basis. My WBC is also consistently a little low (3.4 to 3.6 thousand/ul, versus the normal 4.0 to 11.0 thousand/ul).

Lastly, i have a pain in my right side that comes and goes.

The doctors have tried lots of tests, but without avail. Almost everything has come back normal.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Tom
