Re: Low platelets and fatigue

Have you been given a reason for the low count? At least one study done on people with thrombocytopenia (low platelets) found that counts below 100K can sometimes cause fatigue. It's less likely that your count is causing yours, but I guess it isn't impossible. Might be better to investigate more common causes of fatigue in your case. Anemia or low thyroid, perhaps?
