i just have a quick question.
do any of you bruise really easily??

because i mean, i used to bruise easy all the time...but now, you just tap me and i have a black and blue mark!!
i hate it because i just have bruises allllll overrr me !!
and with me being clumsy and walking into stuff and falling all the time, this is a really bad thing!

i also bruise easily don't know why. i blame it on the lupus and what it does to our blood cells. you can hug me and leave marks on my arms from the pressure of your arms. just another thing to add to this.

I think that I've read that easy bruising is one of the many symptoms of our lovely AI diseases. I know that I've had them all my life. I used to have lots with a mother who often would beat me with anything that she happened to have in her hand at the time.
Now, if Jeff holds onto my arm tightly to keep me from falling, you can see little bruises where his fingertips were. I also often find bruises that I have no explanation for.
All four of my girls are the same way. Growing up in Tex-Mex San Antonio, they used to get teased a lot about being easily bruised little white girls.

My dr told me that planquinel is something of a blood thinner and can contriubte to easy bruising.

I bruise easy and now even easier taking baby aspirin for APS to thin the blood.

I barely run into something; I am purple and black. I think it's just part of the whole fun facts of having Lupus. lol.
