ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
For up to 5-6 years I would bruises on my legs if I wore socks above my ankles when I wore boots. About 3 years ago I noticed I was bruising for no reason, no trauma. I was taking aspirin quite often so I stopped taking it and only take Tylenol now. I often wake up with new bruises and they grow and get bigger. Some start out eraser size and end up covering 1/4 of my arm. I also get them on my torso front and back though not as often. The worst bruises are on my legs but have started to appear more often on my arms as well. I have been to a hemologist and my blood work and blood levels are fine. I did have Gastric Bypass about 15-18 years ago and take multiple supplements that I no longer absorb like a normal person. Also within the past 2-3 months my hair is falling out more than normal, my once thick ponytail is now quite thin.
