I don’t bruise but my body seems to feel more pain than it used to. For instance when my dog jumps up at me it really hurts far more than you might expect. Stuff like that really. These things are odd aren’t they. X

Not that odd really. Our brains are not receiving the correct messages from the nerve endings due to the damage to our central Nervous system (CNS).
Where these messages cross an area of demyelination, they lose their integrity, so the brain is not exactly sure how to react.
Hence, extra sensitivity and possibly harsher bruising.
Just my thoughts.

i definitely bruise more easily and some bruises seem to stay a long time which is quite odd

I find bruises in odd places. I seem to bump myself without knowing I’ve done it and they last for ages.

I’m sure I bruise more easily than I used to. And of course, we all fall over, down or walk into tables etc more than usual. Cause & effect.
