    Question Bruises and Spider Veins - Correlation?

    I have had to back-to-back pregnancies and have developed unattractive spider veins on my thighs, and it seems to be getting increasingly worse. Lately I have also noticed that I always seem to get small bruises on my thighs. (varying from the sizes of 10 cents to 50 cents coin)

    Does anyone have the same problem? Does anyone know if there is any correlation between the spider veins and bruises? (if they are bruises at all)

    All I know, is that I feel bl00dy unattractive!

    I seem to have something similar where the spider veins seem to be looking more like varicose veins - I was going to ask the dr about it tomorrow - will keep you updated :-)

    I have noticed alot of bruises on my legs lately and also have small spider veins here and there on my legs, so there may very well be a connection

    I meant to reply to this thread if you have many bruises that you don't know where/when they come from. And they are on your legs and arms I'd see your gp and request a full blond count to check it out

    Thanks for the message, do you have any idea of what it could be?

    No. Ive always had varicose veins. But if I get bruises it's because my platelets are low as I have blood condition. I'm saying this is what you have but bruises can my symptoms of other stuff going on. I don't want to freak you out but I'd get bloods done just to see
