So I just had my yearly physical. My platelets are at 120,000. Problem is I haven't gone for a physical in such a long time, there is no real baseline which is why I now see importance in yearly checkup. I know they should be up at 140 or 150. My RBC and WBC are normal, so I am hoping all is okay. Been under a ton of stress and diagnosed with anxiety so I am not sure if that has anything to do with it. I went in Google and stopped looking immediately because you could have yourself dead. So, I am having a follow up with my Dr. On Thursday. I asked the nurse if it is an emergency amd she assured me its just to follow up anf if doctor needed to see me urgently. I would have been in that day. So, I was wondering what I should expect at follow up visit. I don't have a problem with clotting or bruising and don't see those little spots. Generally, I feel great, but now anxiety has kicked in and I am nervous as can be. If anyone could shed some light it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

A count of 120,000 is just great, and not low enough to be diagnosed with ITP at all. You have no symptoms of any kind, it sounds like the rest of your blood work is normal, so there is nothing to worry about. Most people don't need to treat low platelets until their count goes below 30,000 so you are WAAAAAY higher than that. Don't worry, you sound just fine :)
