    Okay, so I got up out of bed this morning, looked down at my jammie-clad self and noticed 9 fingertip sized bruises all in one area on my right thigh! It almost looks like someone has grabbed the flesh there or has been jabbing at me which I can assure you hasn't happened lol. I've noticed these little bruises appearing all over me but it is mostly on my thighs for some reason. I can't say for definite but I'm pretty sure they weren't there when I went to bed last night!

    Anyone else getting the same or something similar?

    Mostly I've noticed little random ones but this morning's little dinner party on my leg was enough to make me go WTF?! lol Maybe we're just more sensitive to bruising as the fat melts away or something? Shot in the dark but no idea otherwise! xx

    Thanks Nicki for the info :) I'll ask at the chemist on Monday if they have anything. It's not a massive problem but I don't particularly want ugly bruises all over my legs when I'm on holiday! :( xx

    Well at least we know we're not abnormal then! Good to know others are getting it too (though not good that you're all getting bruised of course lol)

    i find even turning over in bed hurts my hip bones (didn't know i had any) so maybe it's just down to the cushion of fat vanishing.

    It can happen on VLCDs. Something to do with changes in the viscosity and volume of your blood.

    Some people seem to need more Vitamin K. I believe you can buy something to help from chemists under the name of Synkavit. If that doesn't help and it bothers you, it's worth a visit to the doctors.

    I get bruises on the front of my ankle area which are hard to hide and look awful! I did ask my chemist but she didn't have a clue. Will ask about the vit k though, thanks Nicki.

    I get bruises really easily anyway lash em in arnica gel and they go away quicker but since starting LT i look like i have been battered im covered in them luckily its thighs, legs and places i can hide

    Arnica gel is an ace way to get rid of a bruise quickly :)

    I bruise really easily too, but thats how I've always been. My legs are constantly bruised. If its not normal for you I'd keep an eye on it hun and if it persists speak to your doctor...he can rule out serious things then.xx
