Platelet Inhibitor Adrenaline Disorder

Hi Everyone,

I am a 28 year old girl & I have Platelet Inhibitor Adrenaline Disorder.
Has anyone ever heard of this???
I cant find any information on Google besides a post from the 1980's that only suggests the condition may exsist.
Most doctors have never even heard of it and the ones that have are very vague on details or what I can expect from it.
I get spontaneous bleeding into the joints in my legs (mostly knees and ankles) and if I get an injury I bruise like crazy.
I'd really LOVE to find someone that has PIAD or at least someone that can tell me a little more about it.
Thanks so much.
Fingers crossed!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its due to impairment of platelet response to aggregate to adrenaline ,ADP and low concentration collagen.
Platelet aggregation test is done with different stimuli in suspected cases. Its partly familial. Most patients have mild bleeding episodes or recurrent large echymoses.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
