Fibromialgia = Bruising ??

May 18, 2017 2:35 AM

Has anyone with fibromyalgia experienced bruising in places such as the legs and arms? My sister and I both have fibromyalgia. We are now noticing bruises mainly on our legs.

Yep!! So easily bruised, even under eyes (dark circles)

Oh yes! I had to explain to my pain doctor a couple years ago that no, my husband did not beat me, I just bruise really easy. Even my cat walking across my leg or arm will leave a little round bruise

I figure that it had s something to do with my fibromyalgia. I continuously get them on the arms and lower legs. I have to where long sleeves and long pants or shorts to cover them up. I guess I will be extremely hot. I live in Dallas TX and it is scorching in the summer! 😔

I showed my chiropractor/ acvupuncurist... She said it's part of a spleen deficiency. Idk what that means! I'll see her again & I'll ask then.

I get them too. And whenever I bruise they last for like 3 weeks.

I live in Burleson TX. Summers are brutal. I get a lot of bruises but I just attribute it to dizziness and lack of coordination/balance lately.
