I bruise easily....always have, and I do get broken vessels in my fingers from lifting something heavy or if I pinch it (but never remember when).
My blood clotting is normal, but by skin is very fair and thin (another inherited ucky characteristic). Could be meds, could be just the way I am, could be both..sigh.
But interesting....in Sept, when I fell down the basement stairs and landed fully on my shoulder (immediate dis
location and re
location)...that area never bruised one bit.
It could be that you're now noticing things you didn't before?
I'm happy to hear things have improved a bit since using the supps. Do use them nightly for at least a few weeks, then start tapering every second night for at least 2 weeks, then to every third night...etc. The whole point of the tapering is to maintenance.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... increased enemas to nightly
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....bromelain 1 - 2x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
