Jan 7, 2005
My ob/gyn referred me to a hematologist when my platelets rose from 500 to 550 and had an iron level of 27, as well as starting me on iron and baby aspirin. I saw the hematologist this month, and my platelets had decreased to 415, but my hemaglobin had dropped to 5.4. I'm exhausted, itching, sneezing, short of breath, sleeping 12-16 hours a day, and my body aches. He asked why I was on baby aspirin and told me to stop taking it. Then he said my blood had nothing to do with a lowered immune system or my other symptoms. He tripled my iron and sent me home to follow up in 2 months. I understand iron deficient anemia can cause high platelets, but are there other tests/advice he could have given me?
