Symptoms

Does anyone else experience bruising easy or not remembering where bruises came from. I find bruises all the time and have no idea where they have came from. Could it be ms or my meds, I recently started tecfidera.

@nicole_kelly , that's my pleasure. I hate MS with a passion for what it does to you young ladies! I feel for you.

Hello @nicole_kelly, when you have your blood test for Tec, ask if they can tell you your platelet level, which is probably lower and causing easy-bruising.

I learn so much from everyone here! from the questions, many of which I have just never thought to ask, and the answers! we are definitely smarter together ;-) I can have bruises and have only a faint recollection of banging into something. I've always attributed it to my being less sensitive to pain and that is definitely true. Whether due to MS or not I just don't react as much as I guess would be typical. I have many examples like not thinking birth was that bad while others complain ;-0 various cuts and once a leg fracture. So- I need to really watch myself and pay better attention knowing I don't receive all the sensory feedback I should- Now I know that I likely have two things going on...less sensitive and drug/chemistry impact...
