Hi, I'm 42, almost 43. When I was younger, 6, I remember going through a traumatic experience and being in the children's medical center in OKC. My problem was that my platelets were at 3 million & what seemed to be for no reason. They did a bone marrow biopsy, that was ok, everything else seemed to be ok... no underlying issues. It just mysteriously appeared & mysteriously disappeared. I remember them talking me into the basement and doing weird tests & blood smears. I felt like a test monkey, but they were very good to me. It was extremely rare for whatever was going on. I haven't had any problems since. I'm just curious, has anyone else had this happen? This was in about 1980.
