Hi there,
It may be difficult to confirm the exact cause of your symptoms without a complete evaluation. In thrombocytopenia there is low blood platelet count. The symptoms can include bruising easily, pinpoint-sized rash, prolonged bleeding from injuries, bleeding gums or nose, blood in urine or stool and heavy menstrual flow.Aging, use of certain medications all can lead to thrombocytopenia. While mucus in stool can occur with a variety of intestinal infections, it can also be due to more serious conditions such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and even cancer. Fatigue can be due to muscle overuse or prolonged sitting/leg position during sedentary activity, dehydration, medication side effect. If this persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
