Dokts. start plasma infusion bc can't stoop bleeding.
he's very, too much nimble,breachy. they want him to see neurologist (!) to make him calm(?!)

I don't much about this except that my son when he was that age had idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). He worn a helmet for a few months until his platelets came up. Doctors said most people grow out of the condition.
If what you are talking about is different than ITP, I am sorry that I don't know much more.

thank you very much for reply, thrombocytopenia was first thought and assumption, but IDK is it idiopathic or have any reason?
I'm lost and panic because I don't know why they start from the ''end of the chain'' like bone marrow test, plasma infusion without any test for the reason of the problem to fix it, no diagnosis, nothing to raise platelet or increase blood coagulation (except Ascorutine (v-C w/rutin).

The helmet was just a head gear like a bicycle helmet, or any sports helmet to protect the head. When the platelets are low, a head injury could cause massive bleeding in the brain, so it is put on the child in case they fall and hit their head, etc. In my situation, the doctors felt the ITP was an inherited trait, and said my son would grow out of it. That was over 30 years ago, my son hasn't had a problem with it since he was 2 years old. I wish you luck, and hope your situation is rectified as simply as mine was.

Sorry to say that my son's condition occurred in the 1980s when just about nobody knew anything about alternative treatments. The following year, Pearson and Shaw came out with their best seller book Life Extension, they were guests on the Merv Griffin show, and this is the first time that people have ever heard scientists talk about vitamins to treat illnesses and aging (I am not saying they were the first, just that they brought it out to the people through media). I would say you are going to have to use the wonders of the internet to find things if your doctors aren't being helpful, which is a benefit we never had before. I can't offer any advice right now, except what I had told you about my son.
