    Hey,
    I have had them since 6th grade, do a google search on ITP. Idiopathic Thrombocytic Purpara. Hope this helps

    Positive ANA means an autoimmune disease. But there tests so far have not confirmed anything.Mmmm seems to be falling into place. I got sick after trip to dentist where I have two mercury teeth removed. Took along time for the bleeding to stop and then started everywhere else. I have been to ER since for various bleeding problems but they never do anything. The 40 other lesions in brain said could be due to microbleeds but didn't do anything either. I'm gonna get on this when I see doc next week. Also having another MRI shortly. Thanks for the info. Oh and checking out why blood pressure different in each arm as well.

    Started with Dizzy spells. Then came a massive headache and I became unconsious took me to ER. They thought was the heart and referred me to specialist. Coming out of ER I had a worse headache and at home couldn't move from the couch for three weeks and became dehydrated. Back to ER and the doc said was menopause. Yea I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!! anyway next six months was bedridden with fatigue, headache like brain on fire, bleeding everywhere, pain in joints and panic attacks. Also was full up with mucous. Docs kept saying nothing wrong and put me on all sorts of meds which made it worse!!!!! Family thought I was dying and nobody new cause. I started treating myself with supplements and was able to get out of bed eventually and now am bale to stay up most of day. What has increased is the pain especially in legs. All I know is I want some answers.

    Most times they cannot get reading in right arm. Doc said maybe a problem with atery and did nothing about it. If they get reading it's low and other arm is sky high. Anyway let me know what happens after your test. Geez is anything in my body working right.

    What does your spleen have to do with it? I have a strange thing on chest xray where the spleen is?????????????? In my lifetime I have been misdiagnosed twice already. First when a teenager and had horrific stomach pain. Told me it was constipation turned out to be appendicitus. Then for years I had upper chest pain told me an ulcer and I was on tagamet. Had tests done but doc never said anything. he had a replacement in one day when I went to get more tagamet. He said you don't have an ulcer your tests a year ago says you have gallstones!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had surgery right away as one large one was pushing thru. There was a lawsuit against this doctor as he had misdiagnosed another guy who had cancer but was told it was something else. Basically he was just given a slap on the wrist!!! So my faith in doctors is shot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now this god knows what I really have. Will do my symptom list when I have time as it is THAT LONG.
