I've been having low platelet counts for about 6 months now. Very low, dangerous almost. Doctors couldn't figure out why. Turns out it was being caused by Neurontin (Gabapentin) that I take for my Fibro pain. 1/1000 people will get low thrombocytopenia when taking it. I guess I'm the 1! Just wanted to bring this up in case anyone else was experiencing this with no clues as to why.
Stopped taking it last weekend, and in 4 days my count doubled. So that was it!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in to be content.Phillipians4:11-13
