Bruises?


Recommended Posts

Someone pointed out to me today (because I had shorts on and apparently don't check out my own legs too often) that I had multiple big bruises on both my legs. What could this mean? I don't remember hitting myself or running into anything. In the past, I've noticed bruises on my legs for no reason too but this time they are big and dark. I thought it meant blood clots or something. Is this true?

My daughter was diagnosed by a connective tissue specialist after I realized she had many of the symptoms. She has EDS, hypermobility type, which is characterized by very bendable joints, velvety skin, GI issues, dental problems, easy bruising and POTS. Google "Ehlers-Danlos symptoms" and see if you fit the criteria.

Thank you guys! I just read a little bit and I'm not sure I fit most of the criteria except in the vascular category (which is supposively really dangerous). I have really pale skin and can see all my veins through it.
