    Question Anyone know what this could be?? bruises on stomach

    First of all--I NEVER bruise. It is a very rare occasion that I have a bruise unless I was bumped pretty hard.
    Well, I have a very large and ugly bruise on my stomach. It does not hurt to touch the bruise like I bumped it or anything, and I don't in fact believe I bumped it at all. I have had some internal pains, and now just a dull pain inside, but nothing bad. But I have a few other smaller bruises on my stomach also! It's very odd, wondered if any of you may know what it could be?

    Are you low-carbing? For some reason, I bruise VERY easily when I low-carb.

    Default i had that too

    I had a big bruise on my lower stomach before xmas sometime. It was huge and took some time to disapear. Don't know what that was about.. its gone now... hopefully that won't happen again.

    I inquired about it to my trainer and she said that people bruise more easily if they have rapid weight loss.. which wasn't the case for me.

    I have Morphea, which is a form of Scleroderma. I have bruise like marks all over my trunk and back. They do not hurt and cause no problems. You should see a dermatologist as soon as possible, and have him check your ANA's. (He'll know what you're talking about)

    My ANA's are 1.00 which is on the line from morphea to generalized scleroderma (which affects the organs under the skin). He refuses to diagnose me as generalized even tho my ANA's are elevated.

    Best of Luck
