@rubles, it’s difficult to know what is causing your thrombocytopenia. As we age, our bodies can pick up random mutations on certain genes which can create a health problem. There are so many factors that can increase our risk of developing an illness besides our age such as stress, environmental exposures, inflammation, toxins, or even other illnesses.

I’m really sorry to hear that you’re not getting the information you need from your doctors. If you haven’t already, it might be helpful for you to find a hematologist, a doctor who specializes in blood disorders.

I found a discussion in the forum with Tips on how to get the most out of a visit with a new specialist. This may be helpful for you in the future so that you can get the help you need.
One thing that’s helped me the most with my medical treatments is that I always have a little notebook with me or make notes on my phone. That way the doctor and I can stay focused and go right down my list to get the questions answered.

Have you been able to make an appointment with a hematologist?
