Hi all, looking for advice, I am female 65, had a small tia last year, was put on Clopidogrel until 10days ago when changed to low dose asprin, spoke to doctor and told also ok to take omega 3 supplements,
I Bruise so so easily ever since beginning the Clopidogrel, but i understand it to be a side effect of both Clopidogrel and Asprin, so am willing to accept that, small price to pay if it stops a stroke...
Anyway, this morning I noticed a pin prick rash on both my legs, on the shin area only, it doesnt itch or hurt in any way, but I am concerned after googling it that it is bleeding under the skin called petechia, not sure of spelling, and possibly a sign of low platelet levels.
I Have a blood test scheduled of next wednesday, so i can mention it then, but wondered if anyone knows if I should stop the Asprin and omega 3, and if this could in itself be dangerous, will this be ok until wednesday, ? I feel fine in myself, although am having some twitchy muscles and achy joints, which I do get sometimes, although the twitching is usually just legs, and is now in hands, odd face twiches and eye etc, which is possibly just anxiety based.
Any thoughts please, thanks
