scrams and scratches

Postby debs67 » Sat Mar 14, 2015 4:28 pm

Having had a run in with a bramble bush last week, i got badly scratched. They dont seem to be healing up properly. Is this an autoimune problem or fibro related. Does any one else have injuries that are taking longer to heal .

Yup - takes just about forever and a day. :-)

I've always been a slow healer (and I bruise easily), but it's slowed down even more since getting fibro. Just went to check the mirror now, and yes, there's still a red mark on my chin, from a cat-scratch I got over Christmas!

If you google "fibromyalgia slow healing" there's tons of links, seems it's a problem both with fibro and chronic fatigue.

Hi. Yes . Even a small sctatch on me now doesnt heal properly and leaves a mark where it used to heal quickly n leave no mark at all. Another joy of fubro unfortunately

Exactly the same! I still have a bruise below my left knee from Nov 2013 :roll:
