Unexplained bruising

I recently started getting bruises out of the blue. SOme times i will feel pain first and then a couple hours later i will see a bruise has appeared.
Is this something any of you have experienced?
Yesterday I had a pain on the back of my hand in the morning by evening i had several bruises on it.

Re: Unexplained bruising

A couple of things come to mind.

First, if FMS affects you as it does me, you may whack into things when your balance is off. I do this all the time, and it may hurt at the the time, but the bruise takes a while to show up, and by the time it appears, I've forgotten what I did to get. Half the time, I never notice.

Second, and of greater concern, is that it may point to another condition. Some illnesses feature unexplained bruising as a common symptom, particularly those involving excesses or deficits of red or white blood cells. If you're going to see one of your docs soon, ask then; if you don't have one scheduled for a while, I'd call my PCP and ask.

Good luck!

Re: Unexplained bruising

I have this also, but I attribute it to fumbling around when trying to do things. Of course, I am an old dame so my skin is thinner. (TT)

Re: Unexplained bruising


The bruising only happened to me once and it was due to a medication I was taking: Neurontin.

When that was discontinued, the bruising stopped.

I don't know if this is the same in your case, but I wanted to share it with you.
