high platelets causes?
for the past one year, I've been having slightly high platelets. 490s or so. the docs don't know why.
no autoimmune disease. im not on any meds and I don't have any medical problems.
does anyone have any idea what can cause slightly elevated platelets?
@addis The presence of high platelets is rarely associated with a medical emergency. However, in some cases, high platelets may cause blood clotting, bleeding or stroke. If high platelets are accompanied by a persistent headache, difficulty breathing, dizziness, seizures, changes in speech, or confusion or loss of consciousness.
