Anyone have any ideas as to what easy bruising, aches and sharp pains in my legs and arms (specifically my left side), and unexplained weight loss (though fairly gradual - not all of a sudden, i didnt diet but i put it down to just 'growing up' as I am 18 turning 19), has to do with?? I think the pains have something to do with my back as I have a spinal condition (i see a chiropractor twice a week). i only ask these questions because my chiropractor noticed the bruising today and asked me if anyone else in my family had it, to which i said no, and then he asked me if i had a recent unexplained weight loss, which i also said no to because i didnt classify my weight loss as recent and i put it down to a lifestyle change, not unexplained. Should I have said yes for the weight loss question? I'm just wondering what he would have said had i said yes.
