Can not focus well. Not sleeping well, feeling fatigued almost everyday. General malaise (ill feeling),  Normal blood work except slightly elevated protein levels. Urinalysis had a trace of protein in it as well, and trace of blood, moderate ketones, bacteria, and squam cells. (I didn't get a clean catch by using the sanitary wipes.

I'm sorry that you haven't been feeling well.  It's frustrating when you have many symptoms and the cause of the symptoms cannot be found.

If your blood counts have been normal - I would not worry about having leukemia. Leukemia is a diagnosis that is based on specific findings in the blood and bone marrow.  If there are no abnormal findings in your blood, then it is not likely that you have leukemia.

I would recommend to follow up with your doctor to help determine what is causing your symptoms.

Good luck.
