Another thing I’d like to add to my situation that I’ve noticed is I’ve been growing a lot of tonsil stones and some other white spots in the back of my throat I’ve never had before. Not sure if this is related to whatever I have had going on. Trying to get in to a new pcp since I moved so it may be a while till I can see a doctor

That is a good point. It’s just hard to want to ask these questions when the doctor thinks they are always right and that I’m over reacting

Another thing I’ve noticed in the last two weeks or so is I’ve had a few nights where I’d have night sweats. No fever or chills, but enough to make my sheets a little damp, but not soaked. I have noticed that the night sweats happen on nights where I drink alcohol. I don’t drink a lot any more the most I’ve drank is 3 beers since I’ve felt sick. I know this can be a sign of cancer but I would like to think it’s a side effect of mixing alcohol with my Zoloft. Just thought I’d add that detail

Isn’t CLL very rare in younger people (I’m 22). How do I approach my doctor about this? I haven’t had another CBC done in three months.

Hi I’m not sure what they specifically tested for. I also know that my anxiety can make things worse I definitely understand how that cycle goes. I take Zoloft 25mg to keep my anxiety at bay
