Hi, just wondered if you could give me some advice, I have SLE, APS, Raynauds, Sjogrens, Vasovagal Syncope, pacemaker, I have had a PE 2 years ago and I have very low platelets and struggle to keep my INR stable. I am always covered in bruises but usually never know how I have done them but on Friday I fell off a chair and landed on my stomach but must of caught my thigh on something on way down as I have had a big bruise appear. Usually bruising isn't that painful and I have a pretty high pain threshold so usually try ignore it as much as I can but my left leg feels like a dead weight and is constantly throbbing making it hard to move/walk. I have been trying to ignore it telling myself it's just a bruise but it's a lot of pain for a bruise and it's hard to touch, with a hard lump and swelling, do you suggest I get this checked out or do you think it will get easier as it heals? Thanks Sam
