Last summer I went in to get blood work done, and was told that I had a low platelet count. Over the entire summer, I went in approx. every 4 weeks and my count continued to drop. They told me that I would be referred to a specialist if it continued, but eventually I gave up and stopped going in to get work done. Now this summer, I am experiencing severe fatigue to the point where I would sleep all day if I could! I was tested for hemoglobin, iron deficiency, and thyroid problems, and everything came back fine. I bruise easily and sometimes have light pain throughout my body, but that has always been the case. I am just wondering if anybody has any ideas of what could be possible... I am going back to the doctor soon and would like to suggest a few tests in case they don't think of them!!

Thank you!
