Hi all. Just wondering if anyone has linked lack of sleep/ stress to a temporary platelet drop?
I have had low platelet count for 11 years now, though thankfully they have never been low enough to need treatment, just monitoring.
Lately, I would usually have a count if 70-80. I’ve just had a test this week and my count is at 39. Still nowhere near critical but I usually have a checkup once per year, now I’m down for weekly/monthly checking.
This has happened twice before when I’ve had an intense couple of days with very little sleep prior to testing. Usually the low count is a blip and eventually evens out.
This is the third time this has happened and I’m just wondering if anyone else has noticed a drop under similar conditions?
