I recently lost one of my twin sons and have been under alot of stress. I have been having some chest pains, sweating profusely and headaches. My son died 3 weeks ago. I was diagnosed with CHF (congestive heart failure) about a year ago. I went to the Dr. Thursday, they drew blood. Normal values for platelets is from 130 - 400. Mine is 38. What could cause this? They are sending me to a cardiologist Monday. They say my EKG is abnormal. To be honest, I am scared. Have any of you had this problem before? Thanks for listening.
