A few weeks ago I went to the ER because I had little red dots on my legs, feet and back. They looked like petechiae. In the past I had platelets
that were on the lower side, but docs never thought it was a problem. The ER doctor said he needed to run a cbc with platelet and some clotting tests PPT, and PT and something else I forget. Anyway, my platelet count came back normal at 184000. The rest of my cbc was fine, all normal - and my clotting tests were normal.
