Keeping the story going


  1. Whenever I get sick my left underarm has a sharp pain. This is typical in lymphoma.
    2. I have a bit of fatigue that wasn’t tied to anything. Yes, this is me with fatigue.
    3. I have a dull chest pain in my left chest that comes and goes. I have had this for a few years and always thought it was heart-related even though my doctor did a bunch of tests and said my heart is strong and fine. Lymphoma can present with chest pain.
    4. The last one is actually gastro-related and something I will just leave at that. ;-)
