my muscles and skin feel bruised and sore to touch. 22yrF i am pretty healthy and workout often. I had a baby 9 months ago but have had no problems related to giving birth or pregnancy. I honestly feel like the princess and the pea…my skin bruises very easily, I wore pants with buttons on the pocket and after 30 min of sitting I had button bruises on my behind! When I sit at a table and rest my arms on the hard surface it hurs.. I feel bruised and sore all over.. especially my sternum and ribs. My dr told me I was low on vitamin d so I upped my intake. I also have early degenerative disk disease but he said it was common. Please help!

    There are actually several deficiencies, including iron, that can cause this and it would be advisable that you have a complete blood workup just to assess this. Avoid any supplements unless they have been specifically prescribed by your doctor.

    If you are noticing actual bruising, it would also be advisable to consider a clotting profile. If you only feel bruised, then this could be a muscular or even joint disorder. Certain autoimmune diseases may also cause these symptoms. Nerve disorders may also cause this sensitivity (hyperaesthesia) but not account for bruising.

    Your doctor will be able to advise you further after taking your medical history into consideration and running further tests.
