I am just wondering if anybody else has this problem and what came from it. I have been dealing with low platelets for years and the blood doctor just started to figure out why. It drops to 10-20k. I bleed into my skin when I get a shot or blood drawn, I bruise horribly easily..and my monthly is really bad. Anybody else have this problem? If so, what did you end up finding out?

As much as I hate to say it, have they checked you for leukemia? I just know people who have it bruise really easy, but there are many other things it could be. Sorry I'm not of much help. Don't freak out and I'm sure if they really suspected it they would have tested by now. I hope you can figure it out soon!

Have you had your vitamin K levels checked? Low levels can cause the blood to have difficulty clotting.

They are going to do a bone marrow biopsy soon. But we know they test and test and 1000 of $ later..they MIGHT figure it out.

I have anemia but they say it's not related in this case.

 Ok, Ya it sucks how much it can take to figure something out. I'm sorry you are dealing with this :( hopefully though they do find something soon and it is a not too difficult fix
