Fibro Bruising?

Does fibro cause bruising? Several weeks ago my knee felt swollen and I think I had a bit of fluid build up. But since the swelling is gone but my knee has light black and blue marks around it, especially were fibro tender points are. I have been diagnosed with fibro and possible lupus. Just wondered about the knee. Also the joints on that knee really hurt. Thanks

Re: Fibro Bruising?

Good question. I have always bruises easily since I was very little and always have bruises. I am not anemic. Never thought about it being related to fibro though but who knows. May be possible

Re: Fibro Bruising?

I have been told that there is no connection, but I am not so sure.

I get black and blue if I cross my legs. bump into anything , etc

Re: Fibro Bruising?

Sure feels like it some days, even a small amount of pressure on muscles.
I never see anything on the surface, but I sure feel it even days after I get poked with something, bump into something (that happens a lot with vertigo), etc.
This of course makes it hard to prove you have something wrong with you, when there is no outside evidence.

Re: Fibro Bruising?

Bruising can definitely be related to Fibromyalgia. I bruise very easily as does my aunt who also suffers from FM. Everyone with FM is different but for me bruising is definitely a part of it.
