Hi everyone, I've just come accross this site and wanted to introduce myself. I'was diagnosed with PV around 4 weeks ago, I went to the doc's because I started to have dizzy spells and became short of breath when I went to the gym or just fast walking/rushing around, I also had headaches and sickness from time to time. The Doc's picked up on PV 4 weeks prior to a confirmed diagnoses and started treament before it was confirmed by the tests.. I was on Hydroxycarbamide and Asprin but now my blood levels are around normal ranges I've now been placed on Interferon injections 3 x a week. My HCT and HB were high and my Platelets were as I understand very high at around 1300. I just like to add that I so glad to have found you guys ...
