High platelets

I am writing this message to get some information about my Mom's disease and wonder if anyone else has any problems related to this.  My mother was diagnosed with high platelets 18 years ago and has been on the cancer drug hydrea since that time.  She was taking one a day, then two and finally 3 to keep it under control.  Now she has a new problems, her white blood cell count is down to almost nothing. My mother also has

hemachromatosis and is suppose to be having blood letting but cannot because her hemoglobin was too low.  Now they have taken her off hydrea which she have been or 18 years to bring up her white cell count.  The only problem is, is that her platelets have went up 100 in one week and she has had an headache for 12 days straight.  I would like to know if anyone knows if the headache can be related to coming off hydrea or are there more serious things going on here.

I would like someone's opinion on this situation.  Really worried as to whether she is getting the right care at this time.
