Anemia with low platelets and low hemoglobin count

Posted by @stevehoupt1, Feb 9, 2012

My mother is 85 and until October 2011, she bowled with a 186 average in league play. Since then she has become extremely fatiqued with hemoglobin count down to 8.0 and low platelet count. She has had PET scans and CAT scans and there is no sign of loss of blood. No pain. She doesn’t have leukemia nor myleodisplasia. She has blood transfusions about every 2 weeks. no sign of cancer. In 3 months, she does not have a diagnosis. Any ideas? We need a more academic approach as the doctors honestly do not know what is causing the symptoms.
