Thanks so much, everyone, for your good advice! I do not have pain and I do not remember hurting myself where the bruise has appeared but that doesn't mean anything since I have been on prednisone for over year for this round of pred. I probably did run into something to cause the bruise. I will make a note of it in my notes for my rheumy and see her in a few weeks. I will keep everyone updated! I don't know why I didn't put this very obvious conclusion together - it is amazing how busy I am with my new job and I have to be careful about
not neglecting myself. Thanks, again, everyone!
PS Is anyone else cold out there? It is literally freezing here in lower Michigan! Brrrrrr!
