Anyone notice a thumping noise in there ears, kinda like your heartbeat. It comes and it goes. Have only had this since I have been on HU. Weird to say the least but then again I am fighting a terrible sinus issue it seems also. Got sick over Christmas and just cannot get rid of it! We have had some very weird weather in the USA this year, this is usually a cold time of the year (winter) for us and on Christmas it was 80 degrees and raining, humid etc. My trees cannot decide if its winter or summer, the leaves fell off and now they are coming back on! OK never had any issue's with my heart before except AFIB once which was caused by inflammation from a surgery. Checked by GP and cardiologist all the time since then, low BP, no strokes (hope I can continue to be blessed and stroke free) just high platelets diag this year 2015. On HU one a day for over two months platelets have only lowered to 640, were 743, all other blood work ok so far. Get lots of side effects from the HU and seem to be getting worse not better. Saw an MPN expert at John Hopkins, he does not like HU at all and never uses it. Soooo confusing. I did hear they were testing HU verses pegasy at the Mayo Clinic for ET. Hope everyone is doing well and had a great Holiday!! Mickey
