Hi, I have a diagnosis of inflammatory arthritis and fibromyalgia which came after a lot of frustration as I wasn't really taken seriously by the Consultant Rheumatologist as the inflammation factor in bloods taken once, appeared normal. Six painful years later, a blood test was taken during a flare up and was positive.
I am waiting for physiotherapy and treated with a mass of pain meds. I've had frozen shoulder decompression both sides, patella repair and debrid on the left and waiting for the right operations. I have nerve damage in the cervical spine and right side weakness and numbness in the face through upper and lower right limbs and I'm beginning to notice sudden random bruises without noticing any injury. Currently I have a bruise on the inside of my right wrist, mid upper left arm and suddenly had pain in the left hand and watched it swell and bruise. Anyone know why? Or has this happened to others? Bruises appear overnight while I sleep and range from large black areas to smaller purple marks.
