Rheumatologist: From your description sounds like you have periodic low platelets, probable Raynauds phenomenon,aches, fatigue. Suggest you see a Rheumatologist.

Start with PCP.....: Start with your primary care doctor. He will talk with you, do an exam and run some bloodwork. He may refer you to see a rheumatologist, allergist, hematologist, or someone else. Your hand/feet symptoms sound like Raynaud's phenomenom and can be related to a rheumatologic condition.

PCP, dermatologist,: Not allergist. Raynaud disease can be associated with autoimmune disorders, so a rheumatologist may be needed. Protect hands and feet from cold. Some meds help it, others make it worse.
