leukemia/CLL?

Hi,
I recently had lots of red dots appear on me.
Also, spontaneous brusing in the knees and knee pain.
My iron is 23, range 22 to 350.
Platelets on edge of low, which is 140.
I've had anemia in the past, and a suspected hylar adenopathy.
I have shortness of breath off and on.
I have thyroid disease, autoimmune hashimoto's. (14 yrs.)
I have typically lots of fatigue, sometimes almost debilitating.
I have myalgias, burning pain in calves.
I've had spontaneous muscle tissue and burning fluid in one arm.
Probably forgot more, any indication of any type of blood disorder?
Thanks,
FB.

Rather than a blood disorder, I am more inclined to think of an autoimmune disease that may be targeting different tissues in your body (the muscles, lung tissue and red blood cells, and platelets).  Autoimmune diseases are conditions where in the body produces antibodies towards the the normal body antigens.  Specific autoimmune diseases would include lupus or dermatomyositis.  Other organs that can be affected include the kidneys, skin, and even the central nervous system.

However, the diagnosis relies on how your doctor evaluates your symptoms and also through some tests like an ANA.  I suggest you discuss this angle with your doctors.

Regards.
