I just came from the doctor today because I I have petechiae all over my body. When I got back with the blood test results his clinic was closed. :mad:

Anyway here's the results of the blood test:

Hemoglobin - 146G/L
Hematocrit - 0.43
WBC - 4.8^9/L
RBC - 4.8^9/L
Segmenters - 0.61
Lymphocytes - 0.34
Monocytes - 0.05
Platelet count - 193^9/L

So as yuo see platelet count is wihtin normal range. WBC is a bit lower than normal but I don't know if that has anything to do with petechiae. I have no fever though I had a slight one yesterday (100.4F). Been feeling bad for the past week. I thought it was just the flu since I have a bad cold and everyone at home has a cold too. My joints have been aching the past week too. Anyone have an idea what I might have?

Thanks. :)
