Just got some blood tests back from the GP. I thought I might be becoming anaemia because I was so shattered all the time. To my surprise my RBC are slightly raised (only just outside normal parameters) and some of my WBC are raised - neutrophil and eosonophil - are just outside normal levels. I am JAK2 + and diagnosed with ET (platelets are raised). I do have autoimmune disease so that could account for the WBC, couldn't it? Is it possible to develop PV after an initial diagnosis of ET? Are there other reasons for RBC and WBC creeping up?
My GP is phoning tomorrow so I'll have a chat with him. I know these questions are above most people's pay grades. The knackered feeling is down to low thyroid function so at least that is easily enough fixed!
Hope you're all enjoying your Christmases.
