Low Platelets - ITP
Oct 13, 2008
Would someone with ITP help me out with the bleeding symtoms..I have been very fortunate in that my platelets have never dropped below 23 so have never experienced any nose bleeds or mouth blisters. My doctor told me that if my platelets ever do drop below 10 this bleeding can occur but he can't tell me how much bleeding is involved....He has only said to get myself to an emergency room asap so does this mean the blood is gushing out and cannot be controlled? I would think if I am checking my platelet count monthly and watching my bruising wouldn't I know if my platelets are dropping? Or does a sudden drop occur without any symptoms? I would appreciate some information if possible from ITP patients....thank you
