Hi, it's wise that you have identified the start of your problems. Tell that to very doc you see. What was your CBC back then?

Lymphoma is a cancer of immune system cells -  so symptoms can be similar to having an infection or an allergy. Look at your upcoming visit with the oncologist as hopefully ruling out cancer - then you begin diagnosing what the actual cause is.

Do you have a family history of autoimmune conditions or other strange immune conditions?

Were you healthy and had energy before the big rash? Or did the tiredness come first?
