I could be wrong but................

I find bruises everywhere, most of the time I can't remember how I got them.

But, I have found that over the past few years I have become very very clumsy, I think it's a Fibro thing (there is probably a medical term for it)

I tend to bang into door frames, knock into things, etc.

I think it's quite possible that we tend to knock ourselves and then forget that we did.

Anyone??????????????

^^^^ This is just like me. Only this evening I walked into the corner of the dining table and squashed my finger between my leg and table. :oops: I've lived in this house almost 17 years and apparantly still can't negotiate door ways very well either. :oops:

I am always bumping into things and get covered in bruises which take ages to disappear. When I was diagnosed in 2004, one of the symptoms my Rheumatologist pointed out was purply/blue spots on my face and body, also a blister rash. Sometimes when I wake in the morning I have a raised blister, mainly on my ankle joints, it is the size of a 5p coin and fluid filled like a burn (yuk :!: ) I bathe them in hot water to drain them. Trouble is each one of the blister marks stays for what seems like ever. So I am covered in small bruises with my FM wobblies, and circular red marks with my blisters :roll:

Don't even get me started on dropping things :!:

Snap!!!

Also I notice I don't heal completely, I have a scar left from a deep, long scratch on the back of my left lower leg which I didn't know I had until I accidentally knocked the scab off it and it started bleeding. :nono:

Some of the easily bruising I get comes from my compromised immune system which is caused by my RA, exaggerated greatly by my Fibro I suppose.

I also bang into door handles, bang my arms against car doors, stumble into door frames/walls etc., with alarming regularity. It's improved some since upgrading/downgrading to using two crutches rather than my previous one crutch.

Also bruises last quite a long time and turn quite colourful *well* colours. I got blood drawn last Thursday at the hospital and still have a beauty of a bruise now almost a week later.

I seem to bruise easily but they go in a matter of days. However, I smacked my leg on a drawer knob at work on Saturday. Its on the side of my lower leg and it is absolutly black surrounded by yellow. Its about the size of a mug and it is killing me! It is lumpy and sticking out. Its got a really hard lump in the middle. It feels bruised really deep.

This is interesting and would like to ask if any of you get a bruise that last an hour or less then disappears.

I turned the tap on the other day and got a sharp pain in my forefinger. It really hurt and when I looked at my finger, at the lower joint it was badly bruised and aching. The pain soon wore off but the black bruise remained for about an hour. This also happens if I'm holding a bag or the brush handle, it can happen anywhere on my hand. The space between my thumb and forefinger is always doing it, I go to pick something up, I get a sharp deep pain then the bruise appears

On top of that, last week I had an itch on my lower leg, I gave it a gentle scratch, the pain was awful and again when I looked I had this black bruising but that lasted a couple of days.???

I've tried google but hard to look up due to trying to describe it. Let me know please if you find anything out. It probably is nerve related as the pain is so intense, but then why the bruising straight after?

I get this occaisionally. It happens if I knock my fingers somethimes too. It's like I've damaged a vein and it swells and really hurts for a while and then disappears.

Yes. I get bruises very easily. Last week OH was helping me to put my socks on and he held my leg just above my ankle (just normal pressure) and a hour or so later I noticed bruises just like finger marks. I mentioned this to the consultant when I was there about my FM and he said some people bruise easier than others but I have never noticed anything like this before all these other symptoms appeared. I am sure it must be an FM thing.

Hello,

I bruise really easily too. My GP has questioned bruises in strange places before and I can't remember getting them. I'm covered in them. Got a really bad one on my foot at the mo but no idea how... Sounds like it's a fibro thing if you're all the same!
