Hi everyone. I'm a 45 year old woman , and During a routine blood test, my endocrinologist discovered my platelets were high at 1200. I was referred to a haemotologist, but saw my gp in the meantime. She discovered that three years ago my platelets were 800 but they never told me. Three years on, they are rising rapidly, (1300 when I saw my haemotologist 2 week later).
I HAD a test that took 8 weeks, and she told me I have ET. She also organised a BMB for next week (6 October 2015). She said there may be scarring? I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed, and to be honest, angry that my gp did nothing.
I'm so glad to have found this site, especially that people suffer hot flushes that have plagued me for years. I'm feeling quite confused though with everything.
