    Anemia means that your red blood cell count or hemoglobin is low. A low platelet count is thrombocytopenia. You should see a doctor because the bruising may be an indication of impaired clotting time. This could mean that your condition is progressing or poorly managed. It could have grave consequences in the event of severe trauma, like a car accident. Speak to your family doctor about a referral.
