Re: Alcohol and weard black and blue marks
that sounds a bit freaky to say the least.there may or may not be a connection,it would really be hard to say just from what you have mentioned here.the really best thing to do at this point would be to make an appt with your primary dc for a FULL physical which includes bloodwork to check your liver functions and the kidneys.this would check all the basics and see if there is anything that is out of the normal range and then you just kind of go from there.i too get the same types of markings on my legs but i have vasomotor malfunction due to spinal cord injury.your vessels tho DO appear to be rather fragile and that could be from many different types of conditions.i have naturally weaker blood vessels due to a kidney disease called polycystic kidney disease.
your problem could be stemming from so may different things it really would take some testing and an in depth chat with your doc to really narrow down all of the possible causes.but you really DO need to get this evaluated.espescially the liver.with all that alcohol you have consumed over time,there 'could' be some sort of issue with your liver and its ability to create normal ranges of clotting factors.just one of many possible causes.but this does need to be identified at the very least to see if there is indeed some sort of damage to some body system or organ or if there is some other cause like a condition/disease type of thing.you just need to know for sure.
I hope its from just some simple lack of something that can be correted with some kind of supplimentation,who really knows ya know?just make that appt and explain to your doc why you feeel this is all needed and he/she can take it from there with the approprite types of testing.please let me know how things are going,K? **
