  • Hi Holly, sorry to hear that your anxious. Did your GP specify what type of blood infection?

  • Hi no she didnt , only that not to worry and redo blood test

  • Hi I'm the same ET on Asprin and going for second blood test at GP tomorrow for possible under active Thyroid!! It started because I had a tingling sensation across my lips just like an injection waring off at the Dentist and he took bloods and checked me over!!? We still don't know what the numb/ tingling was it's gone away mostly but I feel it slightly!!? Who knows!!? I had just stopped seeing the haematologist too and told to have my bloods done at the GP and they would look at them on line. Hope you are fine.

  • Disappeared again,sorry,having a few problems with I pad as well! My platelets had dropped ,and stomacytes found and another thing that I cannot translate,H C T also 54,my Dr was baffled,got in touch with cut short,they decided to wait for my next monthly test...this time,the gremlins had gone ,HCT still high but down one point and platelets up a little ,out of danger ...just.My P V is not following a P V pattern,I think my Drs are not sure what is going on...An accidental small nip from my dog when we were playing with his ball,I was hospitalised immediately in case of blood infection.

  • Gone again,shall give up,Very best .Sally
