Bruising/Bleeding Gums & Lupus..?
So for a few weeks I have noticed bruises on my legs,mostly thighsthat appear as like dime size bruises mainly in groups. I didnt think anything of it till after I gotmy showerthis morning & saw multiple groups plus other sporadically placed ones. They r all purplish in color. Sometimes I alsoget tiny pinpoint purplish/red dots on my thighs but its usually one or two & they go away. As for the bleeding, I have been having badly bleeding gums when I brush my teeth for about a week. It turns my toothbrush & paste orange & also has lots of red streaks in it. I got bloodwork done Jan 7th & am waiting 4 results but I didnt have symptoms quite this bad then. Anyone had these probs w/theirlupus & what could it be from?
