Tysabri and easy bruising

I just had my sixth infusion and I've been noticing for the last couple of months that I'm bruising really easily.  I went to the dentist yesterday and bruised where he held underneath my chin to give me a shot of anesthetic.  He was very gentle and it didn't hurt at all, so I don't know why I bruised.  I've also had bruising from acupuncture and massage which has never happened before. Most of them don't last long, but I've had a few that lasted a couple of weeks.  Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Chris

I have not seen this listed on the tysabri site as a potential problem,
have you been eating any vegetables that thin blood or any excess
aspirin, etc?

I haven't seen that listed either.  I haven't been doing anything different as far as food or aspirin, ibuprofen etc.  I thought I would mention it to the nurse when I go in for my next infusion and see what she says.

Count me in as a third for no bruising on Tysabri. I do tend to bruise easily when I'm anemic, which was a problem before menopause.  Not so much now! :-)

I'm going in for my 29th infusion next week, no problems!
