Does anyone else bruise very easily? I find that I have huge bruises, sometimes for unknown reasons and sometimes from small things like my dog jumping on me (yes, he needs to be trained!) or even by just swimming in the lake.
I wonder if it is because of any medication. I have been on mtx for about 14 years. Mtx usually turns out to be the culprit most times, I wonder if it is the same with the bruises too. I am also on sulfasalazine, hydroxychloroquine, celecoxib and folic acid.
Oh yes! But mine was much worse in the very beginning when they gave me prednisone as a bridge. Won't touch the stuff now.
I have since started taking other supplements like extra vitamin C and zinc along with a few more that may or may not be helping but it's been better. I've also reduced my dose of MTX so as you mentioned perhaps all roads lead to MTX?....
Yup, sure looks like it. I can't reduce my dose of mtx though. It would be wonderful if I could. I'll try some multivitamins and see if that helps.
