Hi,thanks for query.Please understand that platcount can be reduced due to various reason like viral infection,some medicines or due to defective production.Bone pains and along with that decreased counts needs to be investigated properly.Bone marrow will definately give clue to its cause and help in planning treatment.please discuss this with your doctor,please take help from a hematologist for this.
