I'm a 38 year old female from Auckland, New Zealand. A couple of months ago I went to the Dr thinking I had low iron to be told my platlets were concerning (729) and he was referring my results to a haemotoligist.
The haemotoligist suspected ET and sent me for a Jak2/calr test and it came back positive for jak2. I haven't actually spoken to anyone except the nurse who advised me of the blood results. The haemotoligist letter says he doesn't need to see me till I'm over 1000. So all I've had to guide me through this is Google which has offered up a mixed bag of info.
My symptoms are fatigue, occasional dizziness and regular silent migraines- about 2 per month (aura but no headache - just fuzzy head).
I guess from here on - I just keep going for blood tests? Is there anything else I can do - anyone had any luck bringing their platlets down naturally?
