I am in watch and wait mode for CLL after being diagnosed a couple of years ago. Pain and fatigue are what originally sent me to the doctor before diagnosis. Has anyone else experienced worsening pain and extreme fatigue before treatment?

I was diagnosed with CLL several years ago. I have regular appointments with my oncologist. I have been in the "wait and see" stage since diagnosis.
