Ok I have to show you a picture of my legs.

These are the bruises I have at the moment and no my hubby is not hitting me :P

Does anyone else get this I am wondering if this is Chron's related.
I am going to send these pics to my doc also

This is only for minor things like walking into something does not even hurt but I turn purple :S

Here is the pic put black spots over my panties so I would not offend anyone :S

Ouch! I would give your doctor a call Monday morning. This could potentially be a hematological side effect of Humira, and if so, needs prompt attention.

It's hard to tell from the pictures, but if they are raised bumps, kind of hot and really painful to the touch, it's called erethema nodosum, and yes, it's part of CD. Oh for which the docs do nothing.

Otherwise your iron is really low, I would guess...

I usually bruise really easily like that when I anemic. Might be a good idea to get some bloods run. Hugs! (Gentle ones:)

Hopefully this is something they can fix..

I usually dont bruise, you can hit me with a baseball bat and nothing shows up, however I have had bruises appear where nothing has happened all sense my Dx with crohns and starting on so much medication. Let your doc check you out. While your at it have those big black spot on your nether reigion seen about. Those look awful....
