My bloodwork showed low platelets and low WBC. Cause for concern, or does this usually accompany Lyme disease?

Yes, I have this too. I believe Lyme can cause this, but the coinfection Anaplasma or Ehrlichia can also do this, too. Have you been tested for coinfections?
Chronic Lyme Disease, Bartonella (clinical dx only), Gluten & Sulfite Sensitivity, Many Food/Inhalant/Medication/Chemical Allergies & Intolerances, Asthma, Gut issues (dysmotility, non-specific inflammation), UCTD ("Secondary Lupus-Like Syndrome"), Osteoporosis, etc.; G-Tube; TPN via PICC (trying again to wean off the TPN).
Meds:  IV Cipro, Heparin (to flush PICC line), Singulair, Claritin, Domperidone, Colloidal Silver, probiotics, digestive enzymes, Milk Thistle & other liver support herbs, Magnesium, homeopathy.
