Hi Everyone. I have held off writing his post because it sounds so weird but it's time I said something so here goes. I'm 60 have ET and am Jak 2+. I have been taking aspirin since diagnosis in November 2014 since November 2016 have been taking Hydrea. Since commencing on Hydrea I have noticed a certain smell that seems to eminate from my skin. It's not all the time but often enough to notice. It's hard to describe but I would say it's like a burnt acrid smell. Three months ago I lifted my Hydrea from 1000mg 5 days a week to a 1000mg 7 days per week and whilst this has dropped my platelets down to 412 (hoorah!) this smell has increased in prominence. Without being too gross, the smell is evident when I go to the loo as well. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
