High platelet count

I am a 25 year old female. Over the years my platelet count has been slightly rising. Right now my count is 511. My hemotologist classified this as Thrombocytosis, but does not know if it is primary or secondary. I have several symptoms such as chronic muscle spasms, dizziness, numbness in my hands, feet and lips, low blood pressure, and a high heart rate. The Dr. however said these were all unrelated to my elevated platelet count. He did say that he suspected I have the secondary form of Thrombocythemia, probably due to an inflammatory disease, auto-immune disease, or cancer. I am scared to death!

Does anyone else have a high platelet count with any of these symptoms? Or any symptoms at all?

Thanks,
Scared & Frustrated
