My brother is 21 and for the past month has been feeling abnormal. He is experiencing extreme tiredness, weakness, loss of appetite. He had blood work done and according to the doctor his WBC and RBC's are high.
December 14 WBC 6.8
January 3 WBC 8.5
Because of his counts the doctor is sending him to a hemotologist for further testing.
We are scared that it could be leukemia, please if anyone has sugeestions let us know!!
He did have an EKG done and it showed sinus arithemia (which is a skip in the heart but we don't know if that is related)
