Hi Shelia, I also bruise very easily. It started after 6 months of a chemo type therapy (which I think kicked in the fibro) to clear the live virus of hepatitis C.
Thankfully I did clear but will always show antibodies. All my bloodwork was actually perfect last month.
My hubby hasn't accepted the fibro yet and keeps asking me what I ran into and it usually just pops up out of nowhere. You are not alone in this wacky world of fibro, unfortunately we don't know what causes what.
