    I have had three rounds Vidaza with no improvement in any of my three blood counts. I am feeling very weak, dizzy, short of breath, and just generally ill. I had CBC done yesterday and my hemoglobin was holding at 8.4 after last transfusion. White count is 1.4 platelets have plunged to 24 in a couple of weeks. I am wondering if I have transitioned to AML. Usually I feel like this when hemoglobin gets really low. Could low platelets make me feel lousy, too?
