Lower back nerve pain,and small round bruises which spread quickly

Lower back nerve pain , and small round bruises which spread quickly I am 34, female, about 175lbs with minor herniation of discs in lower back (no major health issues).first syptom was sever lower back nerve pain, similar to sciatic pain, but more severe and usual stretches and positions did not relieve it. Pain is constant, sitting, standing, walking.. a few hours later, I saw, small bruises forming all over my knee , then more bruises, all small and round (like I was poked with a finger ). Larger bruising, and visible veins(not notmally visible) on my feet. Bruses seem to quickly spread...knees, legs, ankles, feet, arms, hands. no other pain than the back... I went to an urgent care center for the back pain , noticed the bruising in the doctor s office, mentioned it to the doctor and she said it was nothing and gave me muscle relaxers. Now the bruising has spread.I did not take the muscle relaxers.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Are you allergic to anything you would have taken recently. Any itching over the bruising. It can be an urticarial reaction but if there is frank bleeding spots it could be bleeding disorder. Any fever, trouble in urination, abdominal pain. It warrants proper checkup and investigation. Avoid any new drug you may have started under medical supervision as well, after confirmation that a drug as such that may be causing a reaction. Get a second opinion if it gets worse or any abdominal pain, pain in the sides of the back and blood in urine. Take plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Consult your Doctor as soon as possible.
