Hi there, I was diagnosed with itp about six weeks ago. Had horrific bruising on legs and was feeling generally unwell. A blood test was taken and I was rushed into hospital with a platelet count of 1. Initially responded to steroids but then platelets dropped to 0. The next treatment was 5 days of immunoglobulin which had virtually no impact, only raising the count to 7.
I am now on n plate and was delighted and relieved that my platelets were at 90 on Thursday, when I was given my second injection. After the first injection saw a marked improvement straight away and was all set to return to work. Unfortunately, after this second injection I feel horrendous. Have slept all weekend and have horrendous aches everywhere. It feels a bit like flu.
I'm panicking to be honest. If this is how n plate is making me feel then it isn't going to be a sustainable treatment. I have a little girl and husband to think of and have to try and get back to work.
I'm feeling really down so any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks
