Over the past 6 months, I noticed I have developed petechaie mostly on my calves. I saw my doctor, who did not appear too concerned, nor did the nurse practitioners at my school's infirmary. However, within the past week or so, I noticed these little spots are beginning to multiply and there were several clusters of them. I pointed out a cluster to the nurse at the infirmary, and again, she told me "it was nothing to lose sleep over". Over the weekend, I noticed a strange looking patch that looked like I had razor burn, but it was flat and under the skin. By the time I took a shower that night, it was entirely gone. However, the ones on my legs remain.
Call me paranoid, but is it wrong for me to want some sort of blood work? About a year ago I had extensive blood work done (for an unrelated issue, my father suffered from a stroke and my doctor wanted to make sure my blood was ok before switching to a stronger birth control) everything came back normal except the 'Protein S' panel, and I was refered to a hemotologist. He basically told me I couldn't take the pill, told me to stay off, and have my docs retest after a month and a half. I was retested, everything came back 100% normal except for a slightly low iron level, and was told I could take the pill again. I haven't received any sort of blood work since that time.
I don't really know what to do at this point, I look at my legs and all I can see are these dots and everything about all these serious illnesses that I have read about infest my mind. I do not bruise easily and if I do it heals in a short period of time. Over the past two days I have experienced some dull chest pain. I attempted to run, and this did not appear to have any impact on my chest/heart as I felt normal and not out of breath. i have always been healthy, seldom drink, do not smoke, and I am in good shape. Should I go back to the infirmary? I am just afraid they will tell me the same thing again : (
