The doctor just called. I'm Jak2+ . I'm 41 years old. I have a 22 month son and found out my platelets were elevated (507) at my prenatal appointment with my second pregnancy. I miscarried in March and since then my platelets have hovered around 600 or so...645 the highest. I've had tests for celiac, RA, Lupus, blah blah..all negative. Turns out I just have a good old fashioned mpn. Dr was positive, said I only need a baby aspirin if I'm still trying to conceive. I had thyroid cancer at 26 and was treated with a thyroidectomy and a great big dose of radioactive iodine. I'm totally lost and thoroughly disgusted. I've been tired, achey, vague headaches, and random tingling in my hands and feet. I don't know whether to look for a bone marrow donor or get a lobotomy.
