Recently I have been having back pains. Had blood test taken and could not find anything wrong except low platelets.

Just wondering if it is normal to have back pains with I.T.P.?

I felt that too but was wondering if it was because of prednisone

No. There are many causes of back pain and I wouldn't think low platelets would be a factor.

Thanks for your reply. I haven't been on predisone since 2010. But I do have low platelets since 2011. I have not taken any treatments for I.T.P. since Nov. 2011, so they stay low.

The back pain has been bothering me a lot the last few days. Thought it might be low platelets, so had some blood test run and doctor did not find anything in the blood test.

Could be a UTI, kidney stones, muscle spasm, muscle strain, disk problem, etc. I'd call the GP.

ITP gets blamed for a lot but I can't imagine it causing back pain.

I've had back pain since diagnosis but it was from:
1)kidney stones [believe me that pain is something you don't forget and know you need help immediately !]
2) rotating some disks and sacrum from shoveling snow
3) a cyst in my spine

You know something is wrong if you have back pain and you need to see your doctor to get it figured out!
