Hi Lilly,

Are you on Prednisone?? I tended to bruise real easily with the Prednisone.

No. I have a peptic ulcer. My legs hurt so bad below my knees when I stand for.a period of time but nothing was found. Just osteoarthritis is what they tell me. I take only tramadol 2 every 6 hours. Huh. I took pics. I guess I could call rheumatologist bit they would probably just chart and ask me about it next month at appointment. I have the heart valve leak but that's probably not related. Who knows

Hi Lilly,

I bruise badly all the time... my inners thighs bruise so much at times its as if I was attacked... I just igjore the bruising now as i know it usually is drug related or due to my blood count which I have done regulary so if there's an issue the Drs would pick it up.

Don't worry about them too much but do see ur Dr if they persist n u r not feeling well.
