Does Lupus And Leukemia Have Same Symptoms
Can someone have leukemia and lupus? Most of the symptoms of leukemia are the same as lupus. Bone marrow biopsy confirmed leukemia. Just wondering.
One can have both.: Lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus) is an autoimmune disorder that can affect any tissue or organ on the body and can cause low blood counts such as what can happen in acute leukemia which is considered a malignancy. Both conditions can occur in one and the same person although uncommon!See 1 more doctor answer
A malignant hematologic neoplasm that originates in the bone marrow and represents a clonal proliferation of hematopoietic elements belonging to any of the myeloid, lymphoid, erythroid, and megakaryocytic lineages. Of note, other hematologic neoplasms like lymphoma or myeloma may demonstrate a leukemic phase without actually originating in the bone marrow ...Read more
Both are: Serious conditions and the treatment of one will be impacted by the other. Do you know specifics about the leukemia? Acute or chronic. Myeloid or lymphoid?
Slight, but: Slight possibility, but the key is to catch any change early - by routine clinical evaluation at 3 month or less intervals by your rheumatologist.See 1 more doctor answer
My mom has Lupus &recent diagnosed with CM Leukemia & now just visited her Dr & has gained 23-28 pounds since her last visit 2 wks ago. Cause?
? Heart failure: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see her doctor. It is possible that she is in heart failure and has retained water. In any case, it is imperative for her to see her doctor.
Will my bone marrow test show up for leukemia lupus etc, while I am on these IV treatments for my blood platelet disease?
High platelet and high leukocytes, no arthritis or lupus, no leukemia (1 yr ago test), what possible infections of the blood could be possible?
Impossible to answer: You give no specifics and how high is high? It is impossible to answer this questions.
I am a 50 yr old aa female w/abnormal lab results: wbc= 6-10 rbc =0-3 epithelial cells (non renal) = 11 neutrophils= 34 lymphs = 59 - should I be screened for lupus/leukemia/autoimmune disorder?
Wbc 11.8 platelets 400 abs lymphs 4.2 vit D 15.8 B12 278 test monthly. Why? Mention of luekemia or lymphoma on top of my lupus but just watching. Why?
It's not clear.: Lupus can affect your blood counts, but your WBC is fine and your platelets are high normal. Your vitamin D is low, and I see you are taking Vitamin D. For the lymphocyte count, look at the normal values on the lab report. If your lympocytes are high or low, your doctor may be following them. I'm not worried by the numbers, but I can't read your doctor's mind. Why not ask? Best to you!
Which leukemia?: There are chronic and acute leukemia. Some symptoms related to acute leukemia may include fatigue, shortness of breath, fevers, chils, night sweats, weight loss, bleeding, bony pain etc. In chronic leukemia, however, many times-patients are asymptomatic when diagnosed. The evaluation is started due to abnormal blood counts. Sometimes abdominal pain, fatigue, or easy bruising can happen.
Multiple: Kids with leukemia can have different presentations. Fever, anemia (low red blood cells--causes paleness and tiredness), easy bruising (not just from the knee to ankle), easy bleeding, bone or joint pain, limp, poor appetite, irritability, headache, seizures, swollen lymph nodes (glands), or shortness of breath. Many of these can have multiple causes, so if you're worried, see a pediatrician!See 3 more doctor answers
Info @ anxietybc. Org: Learning about anxiety problems can be huge help. Living in a state of perpetual doubt takes its toll. Ur primitive brain regions, in an effort 2 protect u from harm, r sounding a steady stream of false alarms. But those same primitive brain regions' "freak outs" r very convincing ; fool "higher thinking" areas of ur brain. Suggest learning about ocd - how it works. See: http://bit.
