have pain/discomfort in the area of the sleen. I am so tired lately and getting lots headaches. I woke up this morning with a large black and blue on this inside of my right thigh near the knee. I have been getting lost of those even in my stomach?? I also have been getting numbness on my right thigh, very strange. I am concerned!!! The numbness on my right thight started about 4 mths ago, however it started with a small area and now its about 1/2 the thigh that is now getting that numb feeling. This past week I have not been wanting to eat hot food due to an upset stomach. I don't know what to do!!! Please let me know if this is concerning!!! Thanks

I would begin by obtaining a complete blood count (CBC) to check your platelet count and hematocrit. If any of these values are substantially abnormal, then a consultation with a hematologist might be in order.
