Constantly suffering from bone pain, scabs on legs, limited WBC, calcium deficiency. Help?

My cousin is constantly suffering from bone pain. She is getting these scabs on her legs that eventually turn blue but never go away. Her ribs and her legs always hurt her. She has fatigue, iron and calcium deficiency and has limited white blood cells. She has had glandular fever for months now and it doesnt seem to be getting any better. I dont know if she has caner or not?

Thank you for your query.

I would have appreciated if you had mentioned the values of iron, calcium and white blood cells for me to give you a better guidance for your cousin. If indeed her haemoglobin is less with low iron and low calcium then supplementation should give your cousin relief in the pain and also on the scab that you describe.

You mentioned that your cousin has glandular fever which is not getting better. A description and investigation findings would have been better. If glands are swollen then has a biopsy been performed on them. If not then discuss with your doctor who shall guide you accordingly.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your cousin all the best.
