Spencer is experiencing a abnormally low amount of platelets. Platelets help the blood to clot.   Thrombocytopenia is divided in three major causes of low platelets.   Low productions of platelets in the bone marrow, increased breakdown of platelets in the bloodstream, and the increased breakdown of platelets in the spleen or liver.   Getting a complete blood count would show your number of platelets and tell if they are low or not.   Doing a blood clotting study is also available to check and see if you have a problem with your blood clotting.
