Hi, welcome to HCM , I am Dr Das
The disease you are suffering from is itp that means idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. Fromthe name it is clear that the cause is unknown . In bone marrow normal picture indicates that there is megakaryocytic thrombocytopenic purpura. That means bone marrow produces platelet in normal amount but in peripheral blood platelet are destroyed. The cause is presence of antibodies against platelet.
The disease in maximum instances are self limiting. So continue the treatment as directed.
All will be ok.
