Dr. Sandra Kurtin, an expert on acute myeloid leukemia (AML), describes some of the symptoms of AML in this video. Symptoms can come on suddenly and include fever, shortness of breath, weakness, fatigue, dizziness, and headaches. You may feel like you have the flu. You might also bruise or bleed easily. Some people have milder symptoms that appear over time, such as being very tired. Changes in the various types of blood cells produce different symptoms.
