I've noticed a bit here and there for the past year or so--usually on my shoulders or upper arms. Tonight I noticed a couple LINES of them on my shoulder.

Of course, Dr. Google is telling me it's leukemia--the same thing Dr. Google told me about my weird WBC counts.

But, given that I have Hashimoto's, could it be due to an autoimmune cause? My body is pretty hard at war against itself right now. Have any of you had this? Please say yes.

Also, I should note that I was diagnosed with Epstein-Barr Virus--had active mono last summer, don't know if the virus is still active or not.

I do get it and it comes and goes, very small though. On my upper chest. My Blood Counts have been normal other than low iron.

If you took Valtrex for EBV, that would cause petechaiae. I had EBV also and was Rx'd Valtrex. Got the petechaiae. Had to research the Valtrex.

I never took Valtrex--I was told there was nothing to do about it. Strange that it would cause petechiae, though. I don't remember having this before I was sick with mono, so maybe it's related to the virus?

You need to get a better doctor if you were told that. My perio discovered I had EBV. It has eaten away the bone in the maxillary and mandible jaws.

He put me on Valtrex. In the meantime, before I took the Valtrex, my rheumatologist ran the tests. Confirmed.

Now this Valtrex is expensive but I recommend that you do not settle for a generic as this is a serious situation. We got the best price at Sam's Club for the real deal.

When you call around, they always quote the generic price. So, you have to tell them you want the brand name price.

I was tested for EBV (antibodies acute profile and chronic active antibodies) and it all came back positive. I'm still not exactly clear on what it all means.

I'm seeing a new endo in a couple weeks and I'll be sure to tell her about it and see what she has to say.
