Rib pain, back pain, and high platelet count.
Hello, sorry this is posted under blood cancers. I could not find a tab for just blood.
I had a CBC with Diff this last week and everything was normal except my platelets. They usually sit at 426, but was 446! I have chronic pain in my knees, pelvis, and back and I’m only 22. They think I may have endometriosis, but is unsure due to me not being able to afford surgery. I Was in pain and in my period when I got my blood drawn.
I had COVID in January and had a terrible cough which made something pop in my right rib area on the lower side.
So worried this could be something more devious.
It’s been months why is my rib hurting still, and could endometriosis and bone pain cause a high platelet count?
Any reasons for a high platelet count. I now have to go for another blood test in 4 weeks.
