Has anyone had issues with bruising? I know thyroid disorders can cause issues with healing mainly due to the dry skin, etc. I have had lots of issues with my cuts, scrapes, bug bites, etc healing and even with all the care Ive given them, ive gotten several scars from minor injuries.

Now I am finding unexplained bruises. They are HUGE green, yellow, brown bruises in random spots. They dont normally hurt much. Some hurt a little if I press hard on the bruise but most are not painful. Its just strange to have a huge bruise that there shouldnt be a reason for.

Is this something that goes with the thyroid dysfunction?

Yes, bruising can be a thyroid symptom, it usually means you need your meds adjuted and is a sign that you are hypo.

It can also be a low iron thing, which can be a problem with hypo too. Have they checked your ferritin levels?

Ditto...I know you said you were tested for it, but it's also a sign of IR or diabetes.

Bruising like that can be caused by a lot of things and if it continues you should definitely see your doc for it.

I've always bruised easy, so i'm not sure if it's from thyroid...I would also bring it up to your doctor...good luck!
