I've just been dealing with inflammation in my FEET which is a peripheral symptom of my Crohn's. The inflammation was so bad, I haven't been able to walk or drive for 10 days. When I went in for bloodwork, 2 months ago, my platlets were higher than they should be. But neither my GI or my GP picked up on that...my DAD did. So I'm thinking the high platlets do tell you that you've got inflammation somewhere...
