Bleeding and Clotting Disorders
i just started to get server bruising to my upper thighs for acouple days now its getting more and more all over my thighs, they hurt bad when u touch. its on both thighs, should i go asap to see my dr.
While it is not possible to give specific medical advice without talking to you and examining you, I would encourage you to see your physician to at least check your platelet count and some other studies. If the bruising is severe, I would encourage you to see your physician quite soon.
