I am 20 years old. I am active, been playing sports since I was 4 or 5. I've been having bone pain for more than a year now. The pain is just about all over my body; legs, feet, toes, fingers, thighs, arms and it's not at the joints either. The pain is like a stabbing kind of pain,it hurts so much, it's not always that bad but most of the time it is and sometimes my kidneys and whatever other organ is on the left side under the ribs hurt when the bone pain is there. I went to the doctors and he took several blood tests, my blood is normal, no signs of arthritis, no inflammation, and he checked a few more things all came back normal. He gave me pain killers but they don't help much. My dad when he was younger around my age also had bone pain and not even 6 months ago he was diagnosed with Leukemia, and he's 46 now. I heard that bone pain is a symptom of Leukemia and of course other things such as bone cancer, etc. My doctor told me that I could PROBABLY develop Leukemia later on in my life. So he told me that he will be checking my blood every few months and we will go from there on. I don't want to just sit around and do nothing about this, especially if the Doctor said that I could "probably" develop Leukemia? What do I do now? Go to a second doctor?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
