Low platelets and muscle pains

Hello....

I have low platelets, but not severely low (in the 100-150k range consistently). I know this is why I occasionally get easy bruising and minor bleeding, and I think occasionally its dropped further, when I get these purple bumps on my skin. But luckily this hasn't happened for a couple years ( the rash part I mean).

But can this be related to why I get back pain and leg pain? I have other health problems too, really more than I want to list. I know the platelets are from sjogrens (an autoimmune disorder), and I've been in some car accidents too. But I've been struggling with my body just not bouncing back from exercize any more like it used to, and being sore for several days, and I get some terrible back spasms as well.

So does anyone know if there is a relationship between the muscle pain and the low platelets?

Thank you!

Re: Low platelets and muscle pains

Slightly low platelets most likely would not cause the kind of pain you describe. Very low platelets, in the below-50k range, has been associated with profound fatigue, though.
