Patient: here are the reports you requested

Doctor: Hello,
This is a family normal report except the platelets which are on the lower end but anything more than 1 lakh is acceptable unless there is a decreasing trend which is not. Life cycle of platelets is 90 days and hence you should recheck yourself with a blood test after 90 days.

Patient: so nothing wrong with the pdw etc????
you have no idea why i might be feeling so then???

Doctor: The early morning weakness especially can be due to hypoglycaemia or low sugar levels and the myalgia with weakness in musculoskeletal system can be due to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances itself. The CBC is clean. Please get your sugar levels done.
