  • I too bruise very easily yet the dr's can't explain. They have done various blood tests and only have suggested vitamin K. My unexplained buises are always the same, brownish in color, round in size, and usually no bigger than an inch. I also have other bruises but usually can be explained. Sometimes I can have up to forty of the 'explained' bruises. Mostly on my legs and I have noticed it's usually after a day I was active. Years ago I had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and recently there was mention of chronic fatigue. Doctors never agree with one another and I am caught in the middle left suffering. I have tracked my symptoms back to at least four generations of my family. Currently my mother suffers with Lupus and my 23 year old son has MS. All immune disorders. Keep me posted if you find out anything. My goal is to find a GOOD caring immunologist. Qualified dr's are a rare in this area if not impossible. Many of our 'better' doctors have left due to the states malpratice insurance rates. To make it worse I live in a retirement area and am not taken serious by doctors since I am a youngster of 47. I even had a doctor tell me "wait till you get my age" and then there was the comment from the adrenal specialist "we all get tired ...you have to push yourself". I thought what if I push you instead! :mad: Unfortunately I was too tired to express myself and left as quitely as I arrived.:(

  • In response to the bruising, I’ve been using this stuff on my kids for a while that’s been working great. They both play soccer so they get cuts and bruises on their legs often, not to mention they’re just generally rough when they play. I was reffered to this stuff called bruiseMD (you can find it through google) by another mother at school. The ingredients are all natural and it works quickly so it’s a great bruise remedy. Hope that helps!
