I'm new here.... My mother was diagnosed with ITP years ago and since I turned about seventeen I began surfacing symptoms my mom experienced when beginning her ITP journey (fatigue, pinprick bruising, heavy menstrual bleeding). I'm now 21 and symptoms have gottten severely worse. With added depression, heart palpitations, anxiety, extreme fatigue, and frequent, light headedness, and nausea. I recently got my first CBC which showed my platelet count was below normal range and my MPV and RDW was above normal range.
Concerned, my doctor made me an appointment with the hematologist. But the hematologist seemed to have no concern at all. Pacifying me, saying, "we'll keep an eye on it to see if it progresses. See you in three months."
Still, this does not help my symptoms which I am suffering from so greatly:/ I'm stuck waiting until my platelets get low enough to cause alarm. Has anyone else dealt with this problem? Any advice for dealing with symptoms?
Thank you in advance
