What is a proper test for this disease

I have all of the symptoms of this disease but, my Dr. says my blood work is normal. Are there any further investigations that I should be doing? My Aunt has recently told me that she is in remission from this disease.

I guess I'm not understanding your symptoms.  So you are having pain?  If so, where do you feel the pain?  Pain is not usually the first symptom of Leukemia.  Typically, you will see swollen lymph nodes first, and then perhaps fevers, night sweats or extreme weight loss.

What does luekemia pain feel like I have had aches in body but they aren't painful at all and only last from 2 seconds to 2 minutes. It doesn't get worse at night I feel better on a night time and I can sleep well. I am 19 year old female. I don't have any other symptoms apart from I have suffered from really bad health anxiety but I think im over that now I convinced myself I had breast cancer then it went to clot in brain then I thought I had heart disease then now this I'm not worrying as much though I'm not on any medication. I have a lot of energy and don't feel any different then I normally do. I have lost 5lb as well but I was dieting and I don't eat as much even though I am fairly over weight
weight. Would you say it is something to worry about thanks.

Hi:  You are referring to THIS DISEASE, but your not saying if its Leukemia and what type, or Lymphoma etc.
     Are you worried because your Aunt has had a disease?  What are your symptoms?
Let me start by saying that I have CML which is Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, and I had no symptoms.  I went for a routine blood test, and my Leukemia showed in the blood work with a high White Blood Count, and then we went from there.
    If you would post a little bit more information, I might be able to ease your mind or direct you in the right direction.
