Question: Too many bruises
|worriedmuch - Sat Sep 22, 2007 3:12 pm||
I am a 55 year old woman, and I have been getting bruises practically everywhere from the waist up. A few months ago, the bruises were all over my legs, but has moved up to my arms. I have had one heart surgery which put a spring in my arteries to hold it up.
But this occured even before that. i am the only one in my family that has been bruising this much. and i am not on any medications. Please let me know whats going on.thanks

Bruising can be a symptom of underlying disorders so it's always wise to get it checked out. I would schedule an appointment with your doctor. Some people do have this problem without anything serious but it's best to rule out problems before assuming this is the case.
