with idiopathic low platelets (baseline 100,000) why is it ok to occasionally have nsaids like toradol for migraine but any aspirin use is not ok?

See below: Aspirin acts as a platelet inhibitor, and can consequently prolong bleeding due to effect on clotting. But not so sure I would suggest NSAID's either, as they do have some nasty side effects. Why not prevent your headaches with daily butterbur, or riboflavin, or Co-Q10. Am sure your doctor can help set this up.
