I have a low platelet count. While I don't have too many platelets they a in large clusters. My count has been as low as 8 with a normal of 58. I have been to doctors but I seem to stump them when I tell them that it is running in the family. I have 5 generations of this disease and can't find a name. This is also running in my cousins family. My grandfather had died from Hopkins. Could this be from that? Thank you Margaret
