unexplained bruising

Discussion in 'Skeleton, Skin, Muscles, Hair, Teeth, and Nails' started by Allyjbrown, Oct 5, 2012.

  1. Does anyone else have unexplained bruising or bruise very easily as well as bleed a lot from small cuts and sores? Is this part of the CFS?

    As Timaca says, low platelets (aka thrombocytopenia) comes immediately to mind.

    There are other causes of clotting disorders that might be more common that low platelets, but a simple CBC is a cheap test - I've seen it in the U.S. for ~$30, no doctor visit needed.

    Other possibilities: use of aspirin, fish oil, gingko, vit E.
