    burst blood vessels like a bruise?

    Does anyone get this - if I stand for too long or do too much walking I get a rash of tiny blood vessels and in some areas they seem to accumulate and look like a small bruise, seems mainly on my legs (I also get hive rashes but this is different). Could this be MS related, any ideas what it is or why it happens?

    Sooty,

    Do these look like tiny little red dots?Blood spots?If so they are called petechiae,can be associated with autoimmune diseases,folic acid being low,or abnormal platlet counts.I just seen my GP for this on Monday,I had an itchy area,with no rash and this is what he said it was.My folic level was slightly low.Seen in many autoimmune disorders.Don't let it go call your GP for evaluation.I noticed it with my first attack and it went a way and now with this attack its back.

    It looks like red pin size dots close together, I will get this checked out. Did your GP give you anything for it or the cause of it? I'm also extra tired maybe it's all related.

    Sooty,

    My GP said it will go away on its own,the spots will turn brown and fade.The blood test showed low folic acid,so taking folic acid now.Plus I take quinine,which will cause this and zanaflex can but rare.As for giving me anything ,not at this time wait and watch.
