Hi everyone... I have read through some of the posts from a few years ago regarding high platelet counts... everyone seems to have had an underlying cause to their raised count.
My Raised count was discovered 6 months after a biopsy of a breast lump (non cancerous but with active cells) aside from a few infections that followed the biopsy I have no other (locatable) major health problems, I havn't had an accident and my hormone levels are normal.
My count is currently at 611 ... previous tests showed results of 617..605..546...607 This has been going on for over 6 months... My symptoms include..
Tiredness (often it comes on suddenly... I will be happily doiing something then will need to go and lay down)
Irregular loose (sometimes watery) bowel movements (it is VERY rare that I will have a well formed movement)
Muscle pain in my arms, legs and even neck
Unexplained sharp pains in my sides (they are rare and only last a few seconds)
I feel like I constantly have the flu
Occasionally dizzyness or disorientation
Stomach pain (occasional)
Does anyone else have this list of symptoms with a high platelet count? My Doctor doesn't seem too concerned and does not believe that the tiredness and headaches etc are related to the count....
I on the other hand would like to know what the ***l is wrong with me!!
