I have suffered low platelets for over 2 years now. Recently my count has dropped. I am suffering bad heavy headaches, rib back and hip pain and bruis?

In brief: Need more workup
Have you been checked for hepatitis or blood disorders like leukemia? These generally can be ruled out by pretty simple tests.
You need to discuss your issues with your doctor. In my opinion if they continue to be at a loss, maybe you need to see another doctor.
