Yesterday morning I let myself get stupidly cold hanging out washing. My chest shut from the cold and my hands and feet went totally numb. After thawing out in my bed with extra duvet, neb and hot drinks I noticed the back of one of my calves was totally covered in purple bruises. I don't think I knocked it (I was a bit stumbley tho). I think my steroid inhalers and frequent steroid bursts make me bruise easily. My chest isn't really settling down and usually I would ve started pred by now. I am worried tho about making the bruising worse... Does anyone know how the steroid/bruising thing works? Is being very very cold enough to cause bruising? I ll be phoning asthma nurse in the morning.
Hope everyone is staying warm and well xxx
