I also had a bruise on my forehead and left cheek. as well as, blood in my eye. there my have been convulsions which is why I had scratches on my face. then I wasn't able to speak and now it sounds like I have a cold or a sore throat. however, i'm not sick

Hi, I am a 47 year old women and have noticed just below by left leg, I have a swollen spot about the size of my palm. There is no bruise, does not hurt when I touch it. It does not bother me. Does not go down if put my feet up. I do take thyroid med., paxil, and requip for restless legs. I am borderline anemic. Four weeks ago had a laproscopic hysterectomy. Never told I was diabetic. I am 5-5 and about 180

Hello. I have had tongue ulcers for over 1 year and 8 months now. They are continuous and located on the edges of my tongue. They range from pin prick size to dime size. The big ones leave deep holes in my tongue once they heal. I also get vaginal ulcers to the point they scarred the area and have eaten away my urethra. My eyes swell and get bloody sometimes. And about 1 year after those symptoms appeared I started to get large painful bumps under my skin that created bruises. These bruise bumps leave a divot after they heal. At the same time as this I started to get blister sores almost pimple like on my skin to the point that if they gather in patches the skin is raw to and purple red. These leave permanent purple red marks when healed. My elbows also started the last 4 months to get hot and hurt a lot. All of these symptoms get worse in the cold months. Odd but I have not actually gotten a cold or flue since this began. I have never been sexually active. Please help me figure out what I have.
