I have been suspicious of Leukemia as I have almost every symtom. The CBC however has never shown the white cells to be unusually high. It comes and goes over periods of weeks to months. It almost always involves dull to sharp pain where my Liver is. I am a Hepatitis C survivor and now have stage 4 Cirrohsis of the Liver. I was declared "cured" of the HCV though almost 8 years ago. There is an accompanying fever that is usually low during the day at 98.0 and often high in the evening at 100.8 or so. The pain will often radiate through my spleen and shoulder. At it's worst there will be chills and sweats. Both my Liver and Spleen are enlarged. :confused:

It is a real drag, as I have spent a lot of money on CT scans and PET scans. I have been told that "angionomas" in my liver cause false positives on the CT's. This has continued now for almost 10 years now. Receiving a diagnosis would greatly help in finding solutions to a number of daily living problems. I have recently kind of given up on my Doctors, as they keep running the same expensive tests that fail to offer help.
