I just thought of something which could help someone. Last year I got classified with borderline anemia.. not due to my blood levels but due to having nearly no iron storage going on at all. This issue with iron storage is common in ME (my CFS specialist has told me that many of his ME/CFS patients are found to have it when tested). I eat massive amounts of meat (2-3 times daily) and that is why no one had picked up that I had an iron issue going on before. My new specialist has told me that when we have an chronic infection we are using far more iron to replace cells. Anyway.. I was wondering if many who have got the bruising issue.. could have iron issues with their iron storage and at times be low (but blood may be being up and down a bit in its levels when you are eatting meat if you have low iron storage, so it could be missed on a normal iron test). Ask your doctor for an "iron study" test.
