Do any of you experience bruises that seem to come from nowhere? My platelet count was fine last we checked (200K). Anyway, I showed the bruises to my neurologist last week and she says they look like little bruises from me bumping on things, etc. Maybe, but this morning I noticed one in a very odd spot (in between my legs, way up high..not likely to bump this area!). I told her they seem to come from nothing, they start small and a strange brown/maroon color, not like my normal bruise color. They also are tender to the touch and have a tiny knot under the surface sometimes. They just do not look like my typical bruise and I usually have one or two new ones about every day.
Hi..there is a condition called Ehlers-Danlos that can cause bruising like this and most with it are slow to heal....we do have a group for it here on Med Help and there is more info in the Health Pages...a link is in the Group threads.
