Bruises - is it just me?!?

Postby ktgreen123 » Thu May 07, 2015 7:56 pm

Evening everyone!

Firstly I came on here to ask the below but before I managed that I completely forgot what I wanted to post about! Bloody fibro fog is getting worse these days!

Anyway before I forget again! Does anyone else suffer from unexplained bruises all over the body? They seem to be appearing everywhere and for no apparent reason!

Is this fibro related? I hope so because I don't think I can face another trip to the doctors!

Hi, I am just the same with getting bruises. Sometimes I think I'm going mad with not knowing how I got them. The size of some of them are huge too and look really bad. I don't know if it's to do with fibromyalgia or not so just as confused,but you're not alone x

I think it must be FM. I get bruises all the time, really big colourful ones! My chiropractor finds ones I didn't know I had!

I am covered in them and have no idea where they came from! I thought it was just me too.

Mention them to your Dr and ask if it could be a vitamin deficiency.

Same here, I just thought it was because I was clumsy and forgetful, I am so pleased to have an explanation now.

I have noticed bruising recently too. Mostly just little ones but some have been quite big. I was beginning to think maybe there was some other cause but glad to see I'm not the only one. So thanks for asking the question Hayleyed74.

Gentle hugs everyone :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

Yeah, but then I got them anyway before fibro because I am so pale and my circulation is so bad. I often don't know I have them either!

I wouldnt say i get unexplained bruises, but i know i can get a whacking great bruise by just a little knock....the other week i caught myself on the corner of a table at work...it hurt a bit at the time, but wasnt too bacd and then over the course of a few days it was black and blue and about the size of a fist.
