Not typical: Most minor allergic reactions would not normally involve platelets. Anaphylaxis could possibly involve platelets, but typically I don't expect to see overall platelet counts on a CBC decrease after an event. I really don't know why.

Unhealthy?: Platelet rich plasma (prp) is created by spinning blood in a centrifuge and drawing off the heavier, platelet rich, component to use for medical purposes.

I had an allergic reaction to a medication which caused pin and needles and nerve pain in my body .Can an allergic reaction cause multiple sclerosis?
You didn't and No: 1) Allergic reactions don't cause "pins and needles" or "nerve pain" (whatever that means). They cause rash, itching and swelling.

Whoever discovers the cause of MS will win a Nobel Prize in Medicine. ...Read more
