Moving to an area with Dengue fever and concerned about my newly diagnosed ITP. My count as of today is 66k. Anyone have experience with ITP in an area where hemorrhagic fever is prevalent?

You are concerned about contracting Dengue fever and making ITP worse, or, is it you are concerned that your ITP was caused by the fever?

What did the doctor say about your question?

Sorry, I wasn't clear. Concerned about bleeding during dengue fever. Has anyone had experience living with ITP in a dengue area?

Peanut Mommy - I've seen dengue fever mentioned here before but I don't know if anyone had a problem with it & their ITP.

Yes, Melinda, Dengue fever has been mentioned here, in discussions about papaya leaf extract, which is used to increase platelet counts in dengue fever patients.

No, those symptoms are not related to ITP, but could be related to steroids or steroid withdrawal. How long have you been off of them?

Presumably you took prednisolone, what dosages did you take during those 2 months?
Did you follow a tapering protocol?
Shaking legs and hands is definitely a withdrawal symptom believe me.
See my new topic for a very good description of steroid withdrawal and its associated problems

If it's not steroid related, then something else might be going on. I'd see your GP and talk to him/her about it.
