From the symptoms you have described and the from lab tests I would first rule out Multiple Myeloma if I am your treating physician. It is a kind of leukemia itself.

There are many variations of this disease and your physician will do some more tests to determine the catgory and severity of the disease.

The treatment options include chemotherapy, stem cell transplant etc. The choice depends on the severity and type of your disease.

Have faith in your physician and stick on to the treatment plans.
