I just had BloodWork Done and my WBC is 20. With a HIGH platelet count of 900,000... HemoGlobin = 8.9

Recent symptoms:
No Stomache pain due to remicade (which is good) (Better appetite)

Hi Kasper,
is ur platelet count 900,000 or 900M? there's a difference.. I researched it and it said normal platelet count per milliliter of blood is between 150-400M.. if ur platelet count is high it might be some sort thrombocytosis or hemorrhage.. best thing to do is see ur GI doc asap and have him analyze ur blood test for u.. I'm not a pro, jst trying to help... and I do hope this helps.. hope all is well.. keep posting
