Hi, was just wondering if anyone knows what the above test is please?  I have RA and currently being tested for lupus/mctd.  I have had blood tests as I bruise easily, and always have, but lately it has gotten worse.  The above test was done today, I asked what it was for and they just said its to do with platelets being too low.  I know with auto immune this can happen, and asked about that, they just said wait and see.  Apparently my four phials of blood is compared to a volunteer nurses blood, to compare mine against a "normal" test.  I have been checked for von willibrands, whic is hereditary, and that was clear, so personally I think its the auto immune stuff, but dont have another appt until 7 june, so a long time to wait for the results.  Thanks everyone
