Hello everyone,

I hope you all are having a good day! Mine just got a little better. I was wondering if any of you experience bruising. I mean any little thing that you might do, bruises you. Is this a commom Fibro thing or is there something else going on with it?

Thanks all,


Sponsors Lightbulb

Re: Bruising....

I have no idea if it is related, but I bruise very easily. Sometimes, all it takes is a hard hug or someone gripping my upper arm. And I have bruises on my legs and arms all the time but don't remember getting them. I will bruise just by leaning into the edge of a door. It doesn't take much for me.

Re: Bruising....

I have a tremendous amount of bruises on my body. I always get them and then I have no idea where they came from. I do find myself running into things, as if my perception is off.

Peace and love, Hangin

Re: Bruising....

Bruises are big part of my life. My skin is very sensitive to the touch. I must where what is extremely soft comfy clothing or I hurt. If someone barely touches me I hurt and it will usually leave a mark. It is hard to dress for work as most attire is not comfy soft. I get a lot of bruising as well as knots under my skin. Does anyone else have extreme pain in their legs. My starts from 2 p.m. on. I take Tramadol at night to relieve the pain, but cannot take it through the day as it makes me nauseous on the stomach. Other info would be extremely helpful!!

Re: Bruising....

I also bruise easily, but now that I take prednisone I REALLY bruise easy. Sometime they just pop up on my body. That is a side effect of prednisone. So check the side effects of your meds, that may be one of them.

Re: Bruising....

I have always bruised easily. But there are times i bruise more easily then others. I am goin thru it now and have been for the last month or so. I have them all over and i have the sore skin also. I do not know if it is from fibro or something else. But would like to know more on why it happens and what causes it.
