In brief: Not likely

However, thrombocytosis can be associated with many things that do cause pain with breathing including pulmonary embolism of blood clots, malignancies, inflammation of pleura and others.

In brief: No

Thrombocytosis, a low platelet count, does not cause any symptoms besides bruising and bleeding.
