Does anyone bruise easily and if so, is there a particular reason why?
I have bruised easily for years and it's concerning to me. I have asked two doctors what might cause this and one said it's hormonal and another said it's probably good circulation. Those answers don't help me at all.
I look around when I'm out and rarely see anyone else with bruises on their arms and legs. I have to be so careful that I don't bump my arms or legs on anything because within minutes a bruise will develop and it takes WEEKS to go away.
Any ideas why someone would bruise so easily? I have a blood clotting disorder called Factor V Leiden but that thickens your blood. One doctor told me that bruising easily would have nothing to do with the disorder.
As I sit here with a bruise on both upper arms from banging into things on our vacation, it just made me wonder if anyone else has this problem and if not, does anyone know why I might have this problem?
