User :   Hey there, I am 18 and a female. For years i have been having these episodes where when i stand up i basically almost pass out and my legs buckle and i cant stand, talk or anything. I also get muscle spasms in my toes all the time when i go swimming. I bruise like a peach and my scabs last for months and always scar. I have bad circulation (blue and purple feet and hands happen often) when a scab bleeds it bleeds for a long time (30 minutes) i have been getting nosebleeds, headaches, muscle pains and weakness as well as i have been having a hard time focusing. any idea?
