    Low BP and Bruising

    I have a question about low blood pressure and bruising more easily. Does low BP cause or contribute to bruising more easily?

    I have notoriously low BP (most recently: 112/70, but there have been times when it's 90/70), but I only occasionally seem to bruise more easily at times. I'm a fairly active (e.g. gym rat ), healthy 28-year-old female. I noticed a medium-sized welt-like bruise on my thigh two days ago, and I have no idea where it came from. Also, I have noticed two dime-sized very light bruises on my upper arm and calf. I also know that I need to be drinking more water, as I have been a bit dehydrated for the past couple of weeks.

    Thanks for any insight .

    I can't help you about the bruising but I can tell you that 112/70 is not low blood pressure, it's great actually .
    I hope someone else can help you.
    Good luck,
