I have low blood platelets due to leukemia of my bone marrow. The doctor is treating me with B-12 shots and they are not helping. The doctor said my hemoglobins are okay and no treatment is necessary at this time. I am feeling very tired and do not have much energy.

My wife had an abortion (D&C) on 18 December 2013. We have conducted a CBC test in January, in which the platelet count is 361 which is normal. On that test the hemoglobin was below the normal range and the doctor prescribed for folic acid tablets. She had normal periods for the next 2 months and the 3rd one got delayed by 3 weeks. Due to that delay we conducted a CBC test in which the platelet count was only 45. The general physician (05-Apr-14) advised to consult a hematologist. Also a medicine was prescribed if there was excessive bleeding during the periods. Her periods had started on 09-Apr-14 and we took the medicine which was prescribed by the doctor. On 16-Apr-14 another CBC test was conducted, the platelet count was 41. There are no red marks or cuts on her body and physically also she is active.
