. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
I am delighted that you have done your research about Leukemia and have done a very good job yourself at ruling it out.
Pain in the upper limbs is not a sign of Leukemia while all the other signs you mentioned which you do not have are seen in Leukemia.
Now, that we have ruled out leukemia, lets try to evaluate what might be causing the pain.
Tell me, do you have any tingling or pins and needles in the hands or the arms?
yes in my feet and hands
Alright, so there is pins and needles sensation.
One of the most common causes of pins and needles and pain in the upper limbs and lower limbs at your age is vitamin B deficiency.
ok, this is possible my diet is not great
There are other causes as well but they present with some other features which you don't have. These are hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, increased blood sugar levels.
Sure, so there we have it.
I would suggest that you get a vitamin B levels test to evaluate this and if there is a deficiency, you can start on vitamin B supplements to correct it.
are you absolutly sure that it cant be leukemia
It takes about 3 to 4 weeks on the supplements to alleviate the symptoms and replenish lost stores
Well, since you have had normal lab results and there are virtually no symptoms of leukemia in you, this can not be Leukemia at all.
would it have shown in blood tests 6 months ago?
Yes, your blood tests would not have been normal.
