Does Anyone Else Get Bad Bruising?

Does Anyone Else Get Bad Bruising?

Since having my muscle pain, I keep bruising, it used to be stripes across me but its calmed down to just round bruises.
However they will lump a bit sometimes or stay there for two weeks straight. I have had blood tests after blood tests and all have come back normal. I was wondering if anyone else has this issue.

You might want to research Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I am waiting for a genetic apt. To confirm if this is what I have. Pain symptoms and chronic fatigue are similar to fibro. EDS is a connective tissue disorder and the body lacks collagen. Bruising, varicose veins, hypermobility, myopic, raynauds syndrome, gastrointestinal issues, tachycardia are all parts of eds and more.

I accidentally rubbed my eye the wrong way and gave myself a black eye. Seriously 😒 I bruise all the time and don't know where they come from. I'll be taking a shower and getting dressed to discover bruises in places I didn't think I could bruise and have no idea what happened lol.

ALL the time. I have CONSTANTLY bruised legs. I'm a major klutz and run into stuff all the time and bruise super easily. I am *slightly* anemic, not enough that it should affect my bruising and my doctor has no answers either.
