I am 29 female. I have had sever itching in areas usually less than 3 inches in diameter on my legs many times over the past few years. No bumps or rashes USUALLY. A few times I did see what looked like a mild rash. After scratching intensly for a few mins it will stop itching and look red then turn to a bruise or a cluster of tiny little purple dot bruises over the affected area. Although 90% of the time it is on the legs upper thighs usually inside, at times I have had the same thing on the inner part of upper arms. I also have cronic leg pain and larger bruises that I cannot always explain. It seems I go through periods of time when I have less bruising and then more. At times I bruse easily on other parts of the body, but I always have one or 2 on my legs at all times. I have regular blood work done but have always been Told that I am very healthy and gave no blood abnormalities. I do have slightly low projesterone, slight hypothiroid, low vitamin d, had galbladder and appendix removed. When I recently had surgery the doc told me I have excellent blood. The leg pain feels like deep pinches that last 45-60secs then let up. The pain is not always associated with a bruise. The pain is usually in upper thighs no lower than behind the knee. It is not a shooting pain it is isolated areas of pain. My legs are also more tender than the rest of my body. When I bump into something it hurts more in legs than anywhere else. Also jet this week I sat on a massage chair at a spa and now have 2 bruises on my back, it didn't hurt when I was getting massaged though. Being that so many others posted similar symptoms I just wanted to put this info out there and maybe we'll eventually figure out what it REALLY is.
