Brief Answer: No,, Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. Its less likely that the gastrointestinal symptoms you had could have resulted in the low platelet count. Low platelet count is usually encountered in viral infections. I suggest you to get complete blood work to rule out such viral infections. Also the stomach symptoms you had could be secondary to the viral infection. Regards,
