User :   hello?
Doctor :   HI
User :   Hi Dr., I have some symptoms that I'm worried about...
User :   I am a 22-year-old female. Recently I've been getting random bruises, which didn't worry me too much since I've always bruised easily. However, my gums have been bleeding when I brush my teeth, and today as I was taking a walk, my legs from the knees down felt tingly and weak. I have the Mirena IUD and haven't had a period for over a year, but I started bleeding lightly and irregularly for the past few days as well. Help!
Doctor :   please proceed
Doctor :   OK
Doctor :   first i advice you to get examined to rule out vitaminC
Doctor :   aslo to rule out bleeding issues, u need to get blood tests - CBC, ESR, platelet count, clotting tests
Doctor :   Are u there ?
User :   ok...could it be anything really serious, do you think?
