Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
A spontaneously appearing bruise on any part of your body without any history of any kind of injury might be due to some kind of a blood disorder.You need to have some blood investigations specially the platelet count and treatment can be suggested after knowing the results.

My right knee hurts and its in alot of pain. The left side of the knee feels bruised and especially when it is touched. It hurts to put pressure, hurts when I get up, standing and walking also. It has been hurting for a week now but pain gets worse each day and it is warm to the touched. I have to sleep with two pillows under it. Cannot turn my leg or knee when sleeping as the pain is too much. I have work in retail for 35 years standing 8 hours a day about 10 hours a day during holidays. The left knee the pain is not as severe as the right one but also hurts. I have taken Avele, Tylenol Arthritis but nothing works. Saw something weird when i turned the light off and the light from TV reflected on the knee when i was wrapping it..around the knee it looked bruised.

My name is Jennifer. I am a 41 year old female, 5 9 , 125 LB. Over the past 10 years I have had symptoms of arrhythmias , chest pain, breathing problems (inability to breath deeply), coughing and severe hoarseness usually coinciding with the other problems. It seems to be getting slowly worse as I get older. I sleep sitting up. If I lay down I risk waking up with significant chest pain, choking and arrhythmias. I tried to get a diagnosis in my 30 s but no one found the source of my problem before I lost my insurance and stopped pursuing it. I recently went to a chiropractor and had x-rays taken. There is significant compression and misalignment between C3 and C4. There is also some arthritic changes between these vertebrae. I used to break horses when I was in my early 20 s and at one point directly fell on my head and was knocked out. I assume that is what caused this particular injury. My question is could this injury be causing the arrhythmias, chest pain, breathing problems and hoarseness? I know you can t answer with certainty I am just curious if it is a possibility. Thank you for your time, Jennifer

Dear Doctor My daughter is suffering from RA +ve she had diagonised lumps in chest and montos +Ve she is now getting treatment for both TB and RA Now i would like to go fo second openion can you suggest CMC has got a team of doctors to diagnose the cause of RA and TB as opinion from other doctor that, RA could have developed (No heriditary) 1.due to injury that caused 4 to 5 years back while she is playing badminton 2.

hello - I'm 47 and tend to get upper respiratory issues frequently (maybe 3 or 4 times a year) and they last for several weeks. Do the math and I'm sick for about 3 months every year. Other than that, I have no issues. Recent bloodwork doesn't show anything but I do have a deviated septum and when I'm sick, it's very hard to breathe. Any idea if that could be a factor into why I'm frequently sick?
