Re: Should I be bruising?

No its not normal at all. You should not be bruising. Is the doctor aware of this? If so, what did they have to say about this? Bruising can be caused by cirrhosis of the liver, Marfan Syndrome, Bone Marrow Disorders (leukemia),Hemophilia, Liver Disease
Platelet Disorders (Thrombocytopenias),
Medications (both Prescription and Non-prescription, especially aspirin, NSAIDs, prednisone),Von Willebrand's Disease and even smoking.
