I'm not quite sure if this is the appropriate area for this thread so by all means if it's not then move it to the right place. I've been on alot of prescription drugs lately because of being sick, etc. There's been the bronchial problems, the migraines, the cramps, the rashes, etc. all within the start of working at the new job i've been at since September. I'm beginning to feel like maybe it's all in my head, maybe I'm a hypocondriac.I work at a daycare in the infant room, so I deal with up to 12 infants with 2 other workers a day. The problem is that after all these stupid illnesses I have now found myself bruising easily. i've always bruised easily but it's been excessive lately and over little things. i let one of the 10lb twins(thats like soaking wet) jump on my legs because we all know babies like to jump. i have this huge bigger then an apple sized bruise on my inner thigh and I don't know how I got it. The only explanation is the baby. What causes people to bruise so easily? The only answer I know is lack of iron in your body. Anything else?
