I am on 100mg / day of Imuran. Last weekend I raced my 4 wheeler and on the 1st lap I hit something that caused the handlebars to hit my right arm....at the time I didnt even really feel it. Since then, my arm - from my wrist to my elbow - has a massive section of bruise - purple, yellow, etc.... I normally have never bruised like this - I really didnt feel like I hit the bars that hard, and didnt even feel sore until that night....
Could this be from the imuran? I thought I read that it could cause bruising easier?
