I normally do not bruise easy. Tonight when I removed my sports bra for getting reading for shower, there was discoloration on back in strap line area. It looks like a few small bruises center back. Doesn't hurt, but am having a little back pain. Skin been a bit sensitive too. Makes no since. What can cause this? Same bras, no new ones, so not too tight. Has never happened before. Just wierd and a little nerve racking:skeptical:.

Any help would be appreciative, thank you.

I get that too sometimes, on the stomach where my belt is, when I scratch myself anywhere and like yesterday, I had blood drawn and when I took my bandates off, I had a big bruise on both of my inner elbows.
I guess the bloodtest will tell.

I bruised easily as a kid (maybe because I was Princess Klutz?), but not so much now. My DH takes a statin and he always looks bruised (I swear I don't hit him!). Amazing what some of the side effects from meds can be. I would definitely bring this to your doctor's attention.

Now look at the way I have spelled bandaid. Thank you lupus fog for making me look like an idiot. I just read through it and thought, " what are bandates",lol.
