    I've noticed easy bruising for about 6 months now.

    Is this common with the fibro? Could it be a nutritional deficiency of some sort?

    I'm waiting for blood work results so maybe something will show up there.

    Thanks,

    I bruise easily since having this. My friend also bruises easily too. It's on my list of things to ask the new Rheumy in August.

    Sue ... I'm in Ontario too ! .. I found that when I wasn't getting enough vitamin C that I had more bruising than usual .. this could be just my biochemistry .. but try taking a good C supplement and watch if it makes a difference .
    Good luck

    Hi, thanks everybody and Happy Canada Day, Fudge!

    I do take a good vitamin supplement, but maybe I should add in extra C.

    I'm also wondering if it is the AD, I remember years ago, when I was on Celexa, I was covered in bruises, even though the doc said that wasn't it, as soon as I stopped it, they went away.

    Should be getting my results of the blood work next week, so maybe that will give me an answer.

    I have fibro and I almost never bruise, never really have. It takes something major for me to visably bruise. However, most of my body constantly feels bruised and hurts to the touch.
