Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Please let me know whether the stretching exercises done you is under supervision of a physical therapist or on your own? also please get you serum vitamin d levels and serum potassium levels done as any deficiency may be a cause of pain but since your pain becomes ok after some time I feel gradual built up of muscles with daily short increments will be useful. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Dear Lybrate user, Reason may be high fever. If for any reason your blood platelet count falls below normal, the condition is called thrombocytopenia. Normally, you have anywhere from 150,000 to 450,000 platelets per microliter of circulating blood. Because each platelet lives only about 10 days, your body continually renews your platelet supply by producing new platelets in your bone marrow. Thrombocytopenia can be inherited or it may be caused by a number of medications or conditions. Whatever the cause, circulating platelets are reduced by one or more of the following processes: trapping of platelets in the spleen, decreased platelet production or increased destruction of platelets. Trapped platelets Normally, your spleen works to fight infection and filter unwanted material from your blood. An enlarged spleen — which can be caused by a number of disorders — may harbor too many platelets, causing a decrease in the number of platelets in circulation. Decreased production of platelets Factors that can decrease platelet production include: Leukemia Some types of anemia Viral infections, such as hepatitis C or HIV Chemotherapy drugs Heavy alcohol consumption The reasons of low lymphocites are about same.
