Legs and Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)

Posted by rip @rip, Mar 21 1:17pm

I have CLL and am having problems with my legs. Numbness and tingling, very weak knees and some pain at times. Acetaminophen takes care of the pain but not the other problems. HELP

@rip Aw, your dog sounds adorable and definitely a Heinz 57! Dogs are just the most amazing critters. So loving and great companions. I’m happy she’s in your life!

Ron, I’m also happy to hear you’re being proactive with seeing the ENT for your ears and, having your eyes examined. Was the ENT physician encouraging with your hearing loss? Can it be reversed or would a hearing aid help you? We have some great conversations in our Connect group~Hearing Loss. It might be a good resource for you to know others are experiencing similar symptoms.

Wishing you all the best for some good news! Lori.

Hi Lori,
I do wear hearing aids but they are not as effective as they once were. Now I am having heart problems, scheduled for further testing next month. My heart speeds up at random times causing dizziness and fainting.
Sincerely,
Ron

@rip Hi Ron, it’s good to hear from you. Though I’m not happy to learn you’re having another setback with your heart deciding to hit warp speed without you hitting a turbo button. That has to be very frightening, especially the fainting. Do you live alone?

It’s very good you’re getting this all checked out next month. Do you know what tests you’ll have? Will you be wearing a heart monitor for a few days?

I sure hope your get some positive news…you’re due for some! Let me know what you find out. Sending a hug…and a scratch behind the ear for your cute doggo! ☺️. Lori.
