Comment from: tired bull, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: March 27

I've started to get dizzy and lightheaded sometimes when walking or exercising. I get strong headaches after a dizzy spell that last for a couple of minutes. Sometimes my nose will start bleeding lightly and my nose constantly runs, so I've always got a Kleenex close by. My appetite has changed from being a strong eater to only being able to eat small helpings scattered throughout the day. My skin around my fingernails and the soles of my feet is dried out and I get cuts on my fingertips and my feet. The good thing is I went bald in my early 20s, now, the top of my head is getting hair growing back; not heavy but you can see it. I think I’ll spike it up! Cancer and its treatments are really a drag to have to go through! My family has been really supportive of this fight. Because of them I can't quit!
