Lower back pain, low platelet count. Taking venlafaxine, anti-inflammatories. Leukemia?

My wife has low platelet ties (84) is feeling very tired and has lower back ache she describes as deep within the back. Her hmg is just in normal range. She is on venlafaxine for a number of years and also anti-inflammatories for joint problems. We are waiting for a urine test but all other tests seem ok. Could this be leukaemia? Steve Scott

only low platelet count does not signify leukemia. your complete blood count to be mentioned . if indicated bone marrow biopsy also to be done . low back pain may be due to connective tissue disorder. may be due to other diseases. X-ray of L-S spine report to be mentioned. anyway venlafaxine is a antidepressant category drug may be used for multiple indications, not seems to be related with your present symptoms. consult your physician.
