Hello, I've had thrombocytopenia (platelets count holding around 40-50, although have dipped as low as 10) for about 4 years. And it seems I may have developed Labyrinthitis (Moderate to severe vertigo, starting yesterday, and it's still going on strong currently). I came across this group using a google search for both conditions. If the vertigo continues, I will definitely go see a doctor tomorrow. I guess the worse fear I have is that some sort of hemorrhaging (due to the thrombocytopenia) is happening in my brain, although I suspect its more likely due to inner ear issue (I do occasionally get ear infections). When I see a doctor, are there any questions I should be asking?
