Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Only worth working up symptom is easy bruising. It should be looked for and managed accordingly.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
