I'm not sure that that is normal :shock: I get bruises like anyone else. But those sound like they need checking out by a dr. It could be anything really x

I wouldnt say they are for no reason but if i bump myself or get knocked it do bruise easily, and not just little bruises, i mean huge, gigantic, look like ive been beaten with a stick type bruises that take forever to disappear!

I bruise very easy too .. The slightest little knock does it for me ... If you get them for no reason you should see a doctor just to rule out anything nasty x

I know if your platelet count is low then you can get excessive bleeding. So a small cut would bleed a lot or you would bruise. I had this when a new med didnt agree with me but I did get very sick. Took me three days to feel better and I had to stop them.

hi I have only been recently diagnosed with fibro this year but have noticed I get bruises that stay longer than they used to and it is at moment through just having a blood test and the nurse who does it is lovely and really careful. I also had a nerve conduction test EMG and the doctor used 3 very small needles and to be perfectly honest didn't really feel them but he apologised as on the third one after finishing up noticed a bruise which has really gone really big but not massive more than I thought it would is it normal with fibro

I too bruise easily and can have large bruises. I was puzzled by frequent bruising on my inner arm but eventually realised that whilst asleep I was grabbing the top of one arm with the other hand and that the bruises were my own fingermarks!

Yes I'm always getting bruises, mainly on the legs,sometimes on my arms, it only needs the slightest touch. The ones on my legs and thighs are where my little dog a westie jumps up, or sits on my lap! Poor little thing he cannot understand why I ouch! When he jumps up or stans on my lap.

Being easily bruised and having bruises pop~up in random places does seem to be something that affects a good number of us. It's something that comes up now and again, and each time it's very similar with unexplained bruising, no recollection of antyhing bumping into the particular areas. For me, I've always bruised very easily from being a small person, but it could never be explained.

Whilst it may be FM~related for a good number of us, bruising could also be an indicator for other conditions, so if anyone has any worries/concerns about the ones that appear, having them checked out with a GP or other suitable peoples is always the best thing to do.

Bruises are my way of life. Did I bump into something and forget, because memory is bad? Or did it appear because of something else? The Black Hole of Fibro...x

I also bruise easily but it's part of my brittle bone condition so I'd say that if this is a new thing, then I'd get it checked out. My latest bruise is on my thigh & occurred turning over in bed. I felt the muscle rip & then the bruise has appeared over the last couple of days!
