Intense bruising by small bumps, bloody nose. Idiopathic Torsion Dystonia?

Our daughter just got over the flu , within a day or two of feeling better and having no fever she is bruising very easily. Small bumps from her gymnastics produced intense bruising. She has also had a bloody nose on and off for two days. We suspect acute ITD but have not had any blood tests yet. Our pediatrician isn t available for two days, should we be getting her to a doctor asap or should we wait to see the doctor we trust most.
