I have had FMS for about 16 years and it affects my whole body. For the last 3-6 months, I've been finding bruises on my arms, legs ankles, wrists, just about anywhere, but don't know how I got them, even though some of the bruising has been painful & quite large. Can you please tell me if this just another symptom or something else? I don't want to bother my doctor or use take an appointment that someone else may really need.
