Hello, I am experiencing certain symptoms associated with certain types of cancer. I am not worried since Im not a hypochondriac but I figure its best to ask someone other than myself so I don't brush off something serious. I just began college so I have attributed most of these symptoms to the new environment/stress.

My family has a history of leukemia on my mothers side. In the last couple weeks I have been ridiculously exhausted. I have been tired before but nothing like this. It is like walking across the room seems like a daunting task because im so tired. I have been having serious trouble falling asleep but once asleep sleeping 9-10 hours and I find it almost impossible to wake up. It seems really hard to read and to pay attention and when I look at things they seem fuzzy. I have these little red spots own both of my thighs. I think they are petechiae but that can be caused by many things. I find it harder to breathe not like Im suffocating but it feels like im high up and every breath I take doesn't feel like a full good breath. I turned my a/c to 70 degrees and have fans but find myself sweating when I wake up. But the worst is the aching. My joints and bones feel like they are hurting from the inside and I always feel aches and pains. I have always had a bad back but it really feels like all my bones ache. I have almost no appetite and only eat 1 meal a day and if I eat a normal amount I feel like im going to throw up. I have lost about 10 pounds since coming to school

Should I be worried? My nosing isn't bleeding everyday and I am not covered in bruises so haven't begun worrying yet, but is it worth a trip to the docs, or should I just wait it out?

Hello. I am a 55 year old woman. I am recovering from a flu-like virus where I had feverishness, headache and aches all over my body. The worst of this lasted about 5 days and I am slowly recovering. However, I am finding that I am experiencing low mood and an agitated feeling (similar to jangling nerves or butterflies in my stomach) and it is making it difficult for me to fall over to sleep. Is this a common symptom after having the flu? I am coping with this quite well as I control my breathing until the feelings pass but it is wearing me down somewhat. Should I be doing something different?
