unexplained bruising and body pain

I woke up Friday Afternoon with bruising on right hand eyelid, a hugh bruise on my left upper forearm, two smaller bruises on right side on back and buttocks.  I feel like my upper thigh muscles are going to release from the bone when I try to pick up my feet.  I have not fallen nor have I been attacked.  I have been to the local hospital for CT Scan
and radiology on left thunb.  They have actually suggested that my husband might have hit me.  NO NO NONO!!!
I am in trouble here.  MY injuries are not from someone - no one has been around.  Please Help me.  Do I need to get my Vit. K. checked??????  Help me I am alittle scared.

Hi...sounds like u r on the right track to get ur vitamin and mineral levels checked first....ur dr will also test u for other possibilities, but this is y we r told to eat a balanced and healthy diet....

I pray this is the only issue and that it is easily remedied.....

You most definitely need to get checked by a doctor and have some testing done.  It is not normal at all to awaken with that type of bruising/injury without having suffered some sort of injury.

I would definitely request blood work be done and depending on the results of those tests, you may even need a bone marrow biopsy.  I don't mean to scare you, but sudden, unexplained bruising can sometimes mean serious illness.

I wish you the best of luck and please do not wait - contact your doctor immediately!

Hello!

Check for any drug allergies as some times this can be pretty bad due to side effects of drugs.

Also rule out food allergy and if you have allergies consider taking antihistamines or a mild steroid.

Talk with your physician and avoid all kinds of allergens.

Take care!

I noticed the other day that my stomach was kind of sore, then today I have a bruise going across my stomach. I have not done anything that would have caused this! I'm a stay at home wife! What would cause bruising like this for no reason? I have fibromyalgia and osteoporosis, could this be coming from either one of these problems? It hurts to behind over and it is sore to the touch! Please can you help me out on this?
