Hi!
Yes, there can be a correlation between joint inflammation and your blood report. Increased platelets in smear can be due to inflammatory condition like rheumatoid arthritis or due to anemia or excessive alcohol drinking. It is also increased in some bone marrow disorders like myeloproliferative disorders (polycythemia vera, essential thrombocytosis, idiopathic myelofibrosis and chronic myeloid leukemia). All known causes like myeloproliferative disorders of bone marrow, essential thrombocytosis, chronic myeloid leukemia, rheumatoid arthritis etc have to be looked into, and if need be bone marrow biopsy performed.
Also presence of macroplatelets may indicate an osteoarthropathy (bone and joint disorder) of cardiac or heart origin such as rheumatism.
Please consult your doctor regarding this. Take care!
