I was diagnosed with CLL a couple of years ago, and have been having my blood checked every 6 months. I've noticed a pattern: when I get it checked in late August my WBC count has risen, but when it is checked in February it stays the same or drops a tiny bit. Coincidentally, I've noticed that I have been feeling tired and rundown more in warm weather, and of late have had bad headaches (which may be connected with an ear problem I had last year).
Has anyone noticed a sensitivity to warm weather? My WBC count is mid 14's, by the way, and I am wondering if anything that happens to me is due to the CLL, or if my mind is conjuring it all up. Not fun to guess, but I think I feel the beginning of something on each side of my neck as well...
I would appreciate any feedback anyone could give. Thanks.
