Any one with low platelet count?

Need some advice please. I have been on Humira for 4 years now. My recent blood work showed platelets at 70...Waiting on a call from my hematologist to see where we go from here.
When i pulled my blood work there is a steady decrease in platelet count when i started Humira until now. I am very scared and don't know what to do. Its taking forever for the doctors to discuss and call me back. Anyone else experience this?

I haven't experienced a low platelet count with any of the drugs I've had and I've not started my Humita yet but just wanted to send my support. I hope you've heard from your doctor by now and they've managed to put your mind at ease?

Thanks for the support! Gastro doc called I have to re test in 10 days. He wasn't to concerned about it. Why? I'm not sure. Said not to panic he would consult with my hematologist and advise the next step. They did set up lab work with Prometheus lab to see if my body is tolerating the humira. (Building antibodies ). I will keep you updated.
