I am getting quite concerned about the blood thinner that the cardiologist put me on until I can get an angiogram (could be another 2-3 months). I was bruising easily on my legs where the dogs would jump up to be on my lap. But now, if you barely touch me I bruise.

On top of that my fibromyalgia is in full swing and even my clothes hurt so any touch is painful and leaves a bruise. And it has spread all over my body. I am afraid to go to a clinic or ER because they would probably think I was a battered wife, that is how bad it is.

Does anyone know if this is common with blood thinners and if it is anything to worry about? The fibromyalgia is what it is, but I am more concerned about the bruises.

Yes, it's something to be concerned about. Go to the clinic in the morning and tell them you are bruising easily and need a medication adjustment. You should not be bruising with just a touch. Or call your doctor and tell them what is going on. They may just need to do a lab draw and can adjust your medication without an appointment.

Hi LP :) It is a problem but one that can be solved. It happened to me while I was on full strenght blood thinners. My Dr just adjusted my meds.
It's much better now but I still bruise easily. Not nearly as bad though.

That sounds awful Laurie. I hope your doctor can fix that soon.

I'm so sorry sweetie -- I hate that you are going through this. I agree with PF (would your sisters steer your wrong?), and you should have it checked out. Of course I am praying for you.

Thanks, Everyone.

I feel a little (actually a lot) bad for airing yet another health problem here when so many of you are going through worse. It's just that at night I don't have my TB here to look after me and I am getting so frustrated.

I will try to contact my own doctor's office tomorrow but she usually isn't in on Thursday and I know the clinic will just say to go to the ER and I am not sitting there for 9 hours. I can try the cardiologist's office but he didn't seem to give me much time when I had an appointment.
