high mpv

I got my CBC with differential and metab panel. Only MPV came as high at 12.7. Platellet count about normal at 220. 12.7 is NOT normal range. If you take MPV of 100 random people, highest you can expect to find is in 11.0-12.0 range. I also get occasional chest pains for last 4 years. ECG came clean according to doctor. Same for X-ray. I want to redo my CBC to see if MPV was just abnormally high for that test. When I was younger between toddler and 25 years old, i would get occasional nose bleeds. I wonder if maybe i have the rare Bernard-Soulier syndrome. Any guesses?

MPV stands for Mean platelet Volume and it's just how big your platelets are! Judging by your platelet count you are actually healthy. Your MPV count is actually normal . It can be a little outside the normal range. Mine is actually even higher than yours 13.1 , and my doctor told me my blood work was perfect!
