    ITP and high ANA

    Hi alló

    Question regarding immune thrombocytopenia. I went to the doctor for some heart palpitations and my doctor ordered a few blood tests and my platelet count was 50,000. I had never had a CBC done before, so I was really surprised. All follow up counts were low, so I went to a hematologist who ordered more tests, including an ANA which came back 1:1280 and speckled. I was sent to a rheumatologist, and all further lupus/autoimmune tests were negative. So my question is, whatís going on? Is my ANA high bc of the ITP? I have zero symptoms of lupus and the only other thing that was found in my labs was that Iím B12 deficient, slightly anemic, and my red cells are shaped/sized weirdly (ovalocytes and RDW >17%) Any idea what my deal is? I feel fine, and the plan so far is for me to just get a CBC every month to keep an eye on my platelet count- is there anything else that should be tested/ruled out?

    Thanks!
