I Have Recently Developed An Irregular Heartbeat, Specifically Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVC's).

At What Point Do You Question Fibro

At What Point Do You Question Fibro

Hello all! I was diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic with Fibromyalgia/CF and Centralized Sensitization Syndrome.

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.
