Hi, my name is Alex...and I bleed a lot.
My problem seems to puzzle a lot of people. Last Saturday evening, I was simply relaxing on my couch in the living room. I felt a liquid running down my back, so I investigated. After standing up, I noticed that I was bleeding from my lowerback, above my right hip. I cleaned the area, and took a harder look. There is no wound. No cut. No scratch. No gash. Nothing. Absolutely no visible inperfection in the skin, and you would not know anything is wrong until you see the blood start to flow. Its extremely local and precise, to the size of a pinpoint.

I shrugged it off and applied a bandaid. It continued to bleed throughout the night. Bled through the bandages over the night, and when I removed them in the morning, it continued to bleed. I applied pressure for a good 30 minutes with a fresh gauze pad, and it did not help. Over the next 36 hours, it never stopped bleeding. Constant flow. By this time, there was blood all over my apartment and decided to have a doctor look at it.

She was stumped. She cauterized the area with a silver nitrate stick and ordered for me to get some bloodwork done. I don't get this back until Monday, and I would like to get some opinions so I don't worry all weekend =/

Im a 23 year old male with no major health issues. Sure im a bit stressed out, and maybe have high anxiety, but nothing really serious. I have never been diagnosed with any blood disorder, and I don't believe my family has a history of any blood disorder as well.
