My son has just been diagnosed with leukaemia.
he didnt really complain, but I noticed he was tired.
he complained mostly about bad headaches (low blood count), and tummy pains. the day I took him to the doctor was because he was very very pale, with dark circles under his eyes, and terrible headaches. a blood test is needed.
tell your parents how you are feeling (symptoms), and ask them to take you to the doctor to get checked out. you can ask the doctor to do a blood test (F.B.C etc), which any good doctor would request anyway. Good Luck, and dont be afraid to ask questions when it comes to your health.
