Fatigue, fever etc: Acute myeloid leukemia starts from bone marrow, where normal blood cells were made. Leukemia cells will decrease the abilities of bone marrow to make normal blood cells such red blood cells (delivery oxygen); white blood cells (fight for infection), and platelets (stop bleeding). Therefore, the symptoms can be fatigue, fever, bruising or bleeding, bone pain, swollen glands, and weight loss.

Yes! AML can kill.: Acute myeloid leukemia can be very aggressive. Generally it is treated at major clinical centers with a lot of expertise in leukemia especially at first. AML is seen in both children and adults. I would recommend that if either you or a family member is diagnosed with this to seek out a center of excellence.
