I was wondering if anyone has ever been told by thier doctor that they have a high blood platelet counts. I went in for a physical after not haveing one for years. I see my doctor alot for my FMS and migraines but thought it was time to have my cholestoral checked ect due to chest pains. Time to stop putting it off on the FMS. When I went back in for my test results I was told my blood platelet count was high and I needed to start taking 81mg asprin a day to avoid stroke or heart attack. He has me going back in for a retest in a month but it has me a bit scared and was just wondering if anyone else has ever had the same problem?
