Over the past few weeks I have noticed that I am bruising much easier than before... and the bad part is, I have no idea what they are from as I can't remember walking into anything or pressing up against anything. Looks like I am a walking punching bag, and people are starting to question..

There are different causes for someone to bruise easily:
- Some medications such as blood thinners or steroids (there are others)
- Some supplements such as fish oil (there are others)
- Getting older (our skin gets thinner)
My PCP asked about my bruising years ago and also asked if any other family members bruise easily...my mother. We had both bruised easily and without knowing why at young ages.
If concerned please discuss your bruising with your PCP.1985 dx'd RRMS. 5/09/2013:Secondary Progressive without Progression. Never used DMTs. Low EDSS.
