Re: bad bruising
Please, if you have not had one already, go have an examination and get some lab work done at the doctor. You could have something serious that needs medical attention. To me, it sounds like some kind of autoimmune or vascular problem. I had been noticing bruises on myself when I knew that I had not done anything or bumped anything to make that bruise happen. I also had started seeing blood in my stool. You will have to have a colonoscopy for blood in the stool, there is simply no other way to rule out cancer or other diseases for sure unless they go in and have a look. But once that is ruled out, there are other reasons why you could have blood in your stool. I have lupus and it took having blood in my stool, along with all the bruises and other skin symptoms for me to finally go have some lab work done to find out what I had. It could be something like Chrohn's disease or even as simple as hemorroids, but please get it all checked out.
