As many of you know, my PLT have been averaging between the 20s and 30s (for almost 2 years now). In most cases, this is a sign for alarm. But, I have been showing no signs of bleeding that anyone can tell. My cuts even clot and heal pretty quickly and I don't bruise more than ever I did. I can only assume that the little bunch of PLT I have are "super platelets". But I need more info.
Two days ago, we had a very strong windstorm come up suddenly. I had one leg in the car and was buckling my son into his car seat. The wind slammed the door onto my leg that was outside. We have a large sedan with heavy doors. Of course, I shouted out in surprise and pain (which threw my son into a screaming fit). There is just a bitty mark on my lower leg (in front under the knee), and maybe the slightest bruise--it is hard to tell. It hurts a lot to touch, but there is no real bump. I am so surprised it hasn't bruised because I was hit so hard. I was just wondering if there could be something going on inside that I cannot see and if I must run to a Dr (because of my PLT situation). I can walk fine and it doesn't hurt when I walk (just when I touch it). If I didn't have CML, I would come to believe that I lucked out with a very minor injury. Just wondering if I should get it looked at.
