I have a bruise on my lower right abdomen right now, I think it's from when an ultrasound technician pushed the probe there way too hard. It has a couple of very small lumps under it. And I do recall getting small lumps under bruises before, but it's not common. I don't think it's anything to worry about.

My legs are always covered in bruises and I never remember bumping them. I have a great big green one only knee, my Leukaemia fear has passed now though so It doesn't bother me like it would of done a few weeks back. I put it down to thrashing about in my sleep :)

I seem to go through periods of bruising easily and not - sometimes I'm tough as anything, then sometimes I bruise if I look at something like I might bump into it.

This bout is really freaking me out, though, because they come so easy and have red speckles that look like petechiae in them.  Totally new for me.

Well petachie in a bruise is normal it's bleeding under the skin which is what bruises are. Plus I've had loads of petachie before with and without bruises.  You should see how badly mum mum bruises , both her legs went purple just from kneeling on the ground to  do some gardening.  It can run in families

When was the last time you had your platelets checked?  Don't mean to scare you but (sorry) a girl at work was recently diag with a rare blood autoimmune disorder called TTP. Forgot what that stands for, and I don't know what her symptoms were. She will be okay though. Other symptoms besides the weird bruising include:

Paleness or jaundice (a yellowish color of the skin or whites of the eyes).
Fatigue (feeling very tired and weak).
Fever.
A fast heart rate or shortness of breath.
Headache, speech changes, confusion, coma, stroke, or seizure.
A low amount of urine, or protein or blood in the urine.

(Yes i copied and pasted). It's probably nothing, like other posters have said, but I would definitely get this checked.

Have you been getting enough vitamin C?  I'm like you Mollyfin - I go through periods of easy bruising. I find if I take megadoses of vitamin C (which is water soluble, so you can't overdose), the bruising stops.

And I sometimes get knots under the bruises, too. They go away when the bruise is gone.

Good to know :)  I know sometimes things come on suddenly, and I know nothing about the problem you mentioned.  I hope your friend is doing well.

I think I get enough vitamin C but I'll start taking more and see if that improves anything.  All my levels were normal except for D when I had them check a couple months ago though.  (D still on the low side but improving.)
