Patient :In march 2012 i was taken to the hospital, because i had this severe migrain. it was so painful that all i could do was scream. i stayed at the hospital for a week, and while at the hospital the doctors did a bone marrow biopsy on me. before i left the hospital, the doctor spoke to me and said i could die and i had essential Thrombocythemia. i was afraid. so a day after they called me back and said they made a mistake. i just want to know if i do have Thrombocythemia, because sometimes i have nose bleeds, and when i have my period i bleed a lot, if i walk up the stairs my heart beats so fast, as if i ran a mile.
Symptoms: Nose bleeds, heavy menstral bleeding, tiredness
