Please Help?

I mentioned some symptons i've had recently to a friend and they said that it may be symptoms of Lukemia, i've made an appointment to see a docter but the earliset appointment i could get is in two weeks time. I would really appreciate your help.

I have had the below in the last couple of weeks:

- Dilated Pupils on a regular basis (i don't take any drugs)
- Small brown mark/rashes on my chest aprox 5 grouped closed together, sometimes ichy and sometimes become darker
- Had two small spots on my leg the spots were under the skin, they went down over a couple of days and it was like blood came out of them when they went down.

Anybodys comments would be appreciated..

First of All, do not listen to anyone but your doctor.  Get a good check-up, and the first thing you should have done is COMPLETE blood work done to check you blood counts, platelets etc.  Then go from there.
I do have Leukemia, and I had no symptoms at all.  I went for a routine blood test, and they found a elevated White Blood Count which could be a sign of Leukemia or just some type of infection.  Mine turned out to be Leukemia.
Please post how your doing after you see a doctor for a thorough check-up.
Good Luck

Suzzie61 said it all as far as getting your blood work done.  There two other types of doctors you should probably check with - a dermatologist and opthomologist - for your skin and your eyes.
