Re: Any Advice for A young Woman?

The petechiae is suggestive of a disorder affecting the platellets which help your blood to clot. The fatigue could be a result of anemia, or may be related to an autoimmune disorder causing the platellets to be destroyed. It will be important to see what all your blood cell counts are. There are benign conditions that can cause your symptoms, so I would not jump to any conclusions about leukemia or something that serious. The blood counts come back the next day, so I would call your Drs office tomorrow to ask for results. Don't wait for them to call you- it will just prolong your anxiety.
