Good evening, Zulkarnain, thank you for the question yes at HealthReplies.com.
Reading your complaints, these complaints are a collection of some of the symptoms that can arise due to the disease that you are suffering at this time.
Idiopathic Thromboyctopenia Purpura (ITP) Disease is a disease that decreases the number of platelet blood cells, which until now is still unknown, and causes no symptoms. When it causes symptoms, the most common symptom is bleeding (bruising easily, bleeding below) skin, bleeding in the gums, blood that comes out with urine / feces, nosebleeds, etc.). Apart from bleeding, this disease usually does not cause complaints and other complications, complications that can arise are usually caused by long-term side effects of the drugs used in the treatment of these diseases.
SLE or Systemic Lupus Erythematosus is a disease that arises due to an excessive immune system and attacks various organs of the body itself causing various symptoms depending on the organ that is attacked by the immune system, but there are 3 general symptoms that are almost always felt by people with the disease this is a very extreme feeling of fatigue, a rash on the facial skin (on the bridge of the nose and cheeks), as well as pain in the joints. This disease if not controlled properly can cause various complications that are quite dangerous such as heart problems, kidney damage, infections, disorders of the brain, and also death of bone tissue.
Anemia itself is a condition when the body lacks red blood cells that contain hemoglobin. This situation can be a disease that stands alone (for example due to lack of certain nutrients, defects in the form of red blood cells and others) or is one of the symptoms that also arise due to other diseases such as SLE that you are suffering at this time. Anemia can cause various symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, pale skin, difficulty concentrating, etc. depending on the level of hemoglobin in the blood, the lower the more severe the symptoms that will arise. This disease can cause complications in the form of extreme fatigue, heart problems and also an increased risk of infection.
Because you have quite a lot of illnesses and may be related to one another, you should undergo treatment and lifestyle recommendations in accordance with what has been recommended by the doctor who is currently treating you. Take the recommended medication according to the dosage and regularly so that your illnesses are well controlled and do not cause severe complications later on. To overcome the symptoms that you are feeling right now, it is advisable to immediately consult with your doctor, it is not advisable to take medication yourself because there are separate considerations about the recommended drug and not recommended for use based on the situation you are currently suffering from.
I hope this helps.
