Are severe back pain, nausea and bursitis associated with ITP?

I am having severe pain in my left mid back. Also pain into left upper quadrant abdomen. Nausea, no vomiting. No diarrhea. Diagnosed with bursitis in right shoulder last Thursday. Steroid injection given. Also trying to wean off effexor. Taking 30 mg daily at present. Have history of ITP.

The back pain and bursitis that you have is not likely to be related to ITP. In addition to the steroid injection, oral muscle relaxants and regular physiotherapy will help in decreasing pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
