Straight to point...

Can Raynaud's Phenomenon be related to raised platelets and migraine? Thanks!

No, Raynaud's is a vascular phenomenom, not a blood disorder. Dr's used to think that migraines were caused by vascular spasms, but current research says otherwise, so again, no. Out of curiosity, are you referring to Primary or Secondary Raynaud's?

Thanks. The doctor seems to think it is primary raynaud's. I was wondering if it was somehow related to my recent bout of migraines and raised platelet levels.

Ahhh. Again, no, neither are the cause of or the result of Raynaud's. I do believe this to be correct, however: stress can trigger a Raynaud's attack and make a regular one worse and triggers migraines as well. Best of luck to you and stay warm.
