What causes weight loss along with brusies all over the body?

I am 5”7 I was 135 8 months ago and now I’m 110, I’m losing weight without trying. I have bruises all over no injuries. I have a horse voice 7 weeks now. I’m tired, don’t feel hungry. When I eat a little I feel full. My gums are swollen and bleed when I brush.

Hi,

Beeding gums with bruising all over the body due to thrombocytopenia or gingivitis or Lyme's disease or leptospirosis or malignancy etc.

Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Use tablet Pantoprazole before breakfast for one week. use tablet Limcee once a day for five days.

Apply moisturizer cream and get it done platelet count, blood for malaria, enteric fever. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi. I missed my period for almost 3 months now. Back in september i was over excercising and lost alot of weight so i guessed that may be the reason to skip my period in october. I stopped excercising for a while in october in hoping to get my period back in november. November has passed and still no period. Am i doing anything wrong or is there anything i should be doing to balance my hormone levels in my body to get my period back? I’d really like to know the problem.

I have had amenorrhea for over a year now, and it could not be traced to anything during a clinical test, or dietetic recall, or a bone scan. I keep losing weight, but still perform on a high level in track and field. Could my body just think it s pregnant, or something?
