    Jelly, it was suggested to me by Madwolf to look up hypercoagulability and mention it to my PCP. I had severe bruising on my legs from merely scratching. Albeit, it was severe itching that caused the scratching. I did not scratch so hard as to cause my legs to bleed or even appear scratched; just bruised like the dickens. My PCP ordered a blood test to check my liver function (I guess), but I am not sure what it will show. I have been reading (or trying to) your posts on hypercoagulability, but I have to admit that I don't really understand any of it. Can you explain in laymans terms what this is about? Does my bruising sound anythng like hypercoagulability? Just curious as to your opinion... TIA
