Hi, I m a 17 year old female. For the past few months, I ve had some odd symptoms. I ve been feeling extremely tired, sore joints, developed a swollen painless bump on my groin twice in the past couple of months, a dry patch on the roof of my mouth. I have gotten much paler in my face & arms. I can see my veins much more clearly in my breasts & arms/fingers. I do have Ulcerative Colitis , but have been in remission for a while. I have paid no attention to these symptoms, & have thought of them to be hormonal as I have started & stopped birth control within the past few months. But today, I noticed two red/purple bruises on my cheek. It appeared out of nowhere & I decided to do some research. I don t know what this could be, I don t want to freak myself out. I have seen diseases linked to this such as leukemia but I don t want to think the worst, even though I do have a lot of symptoms.
