Anyone out there in fibro land seem to bruise easily? And/or have bruises hang around longer than normal. Or even grow in size?
Last year I had a bruise on my hand from an IV site that was there for 4 weeks and for a while kept growing. Just when Dr. P was going to send me to a hematologist, it started shrinking.
I have another one again from an IV stick two weeks ago. It’s still pretty small (the size of a nickel?) but does seem to be growing. I see Dr. P tomorrow.
Dr. K wrote me a referral to a new rheumatologist at one of the university hospitals. Dr. H has decided to stop listening to what I say. He was all like, you don’t have rheumatoid arthritis. Fine. Whatever. I get that. But my hands still hurt like hell and I’m having trouble opening jars of stuff. I’ve got a jar of spaghetti sauce in my cabinet that I doubt I’ll ever get open.
And I’m tired. I’m so tired. I gotta get up early tomorrow so I can see Dr. P and maybe fit in a visit to Dr. K. Oh yeah, he gave me the wonderful news that I have tendonitis in my right Achilles tendon. And for no good reason.
