It’s great you’re trying to get a lot of information about Polycythemia Vera. Sometimes it takes a lot of questions before finding the right answers—and it may be overwhelming to see how much information there is online.

I’m doing research on how to make sure we bring the right health care information online to those who need it most. If you have a few minutes, I’d appreciate your feedback on a brief survey. We’ll make a donation for each completed survey. I work for a company that’s passionate about getting safe and effective treatments approved and available to patients.

Thanks for your help :)

I hadn't heard of it before, but from reading an article from Medline plus here: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/artic... I may have had something like that in the past. (does that meke me a hypocondirac? LoL!) According to the Medline article, it is bone marrow which is out of whack.

I pray you are able to get it under control. From the article it sounds like giving blood may be a way to control it.

Blessings to you and yours, angel.
