Has anyone gotten random bruises? Last week, I had one on my knee and two on my shin; and this week, I have one on my arm. I don't remember bumping into anything or hurting myself, so I'm not sure why they are there. I told my GI's nurse about it, and she said it shouldn't be a problem but to keep an eye on it.
I also still have acne and hair loss even though I stopped the steroid rectal meds over a month ago. The last couple of weeks I've been having pain on knees that go away once I use a heating pad. And I have some sort of back pain and runny nose almost everyday. Whenever I have skin problems, they're usually just dry patches; but now they're bright red dry patches. I'm still getting cold sores and the "time of the month" had me vomiting. And I'm still exhausted all the time even though I'm supposed to be in remission (although I have IBS symptoms).
What is going on with my body? I know things could be a lot worse, but will it ever get better? Or will problems keep adding up?
