    Bruises and anemia

    Last time the Dr. said i was low on iron bruises were appearing for no good reason (hit and runs?!) and taking forever to go away. I have been taking 300mg or EuroFer every day to help boost my levels. But the bruising is back. My dog jumped on me last week and left a 5 inch long by 1 1/2 wide bruise down my leg. And yesterday i found a bruise the size and shape of a dime on the back of my knee. I thought that was the weirdest place to get a bruise. Should i be worried that my iron levels are not improving?

    Easy bruising can be a sign of low platelets. Have they ever checked your platelet count? It usually comes with a CBC if they check for it.
