Huge bruise on my stomach.. *Warning pic* Tig ♥ 1 child; 1 angel baby; Georgia 6109 posts
15th Jan '12

So I woke this morning and was getting ready to shower and when I looked in the mirror after taking off my hoodie I noticed this really huge bruise on my stomach. It freaked me out a bit because I haven't bumped into anything or been hit by anything to my knowledge... It doesn't hurt. Even when I poke it or rub over it, no pain whatsoever. I can't afford to see a doctor, and don't actually have insurance, but I was wondering if any of you ladies knew of something that might cause a bruise like this one? (pic will be down a bit in this post.)
It's probably about two inches wide, almost a perfect circle, and purple.. I have no idea how old it is.. but I would think it's a touch old because of how one part of it looks almost like an old bruise... Any input is appreciated.

It doesn't look like an old bruise to me, when the bruise is older, it will be more yellower and greener than it would be purple.



That's so weird that you got a bruise out of no where.



You don't sleep walk do you?

I got bruised from the inside out when I was pregnant with DS, but not THAT bad :(

I get huge bruises like that without even remembering why or how that could have happened. But ya, it sucks!

I don't sleep walk.. once I'm in a comfortable position I'm there until I wake up... there's a spot on it near the top that's actually a bit yellow as if it's older than the rest is why I said that.. ><

I get bruises like that on my legs every once and a while, not that big though. And I have no idea how they get there!

I know.. I tend to get them on my legs or whatever... but never one this huge or this bad...

You could be anemic. I bruise super easily and that's the reason my Dr gave.

I've thought about that, but I really don't get many bruises.. the ones I get on my legs are few and far between and they usually hurt a little when I poke them.. lol

You could call one of those ask-a-nurse hotlines, but its probably nothing and they will just say that you need to be seen to be sure. That is a pretty gnarly bruise so I think you should watch for others just in case, but if it doesn't keep happening I wouldn't worry.

That's what I'm thinking.. if I had more minutes on my phone I'd call one.. as far as I know I don't have any other bruises and this is the first time I've ever had one show up this bad.. usually they're smaller than a quarter and nowhere near as dark...

Once I woke up and alllll over my lower tummy and near my thighs were bruises I had probably like 20 in total. They hurt though. and I had no idea where they came from. I always bruise and I hate it. were you bitten by a spider or anything? My mom got bit by a spider and got a HUGE bruise like that then it started to get worse and she went to the doctor who said she was bitten by a brown recluse spider. It could be sooo many things! I'd go to your doctor though!

That scares me because they're actually common where I live....
I'm just gonna keep an eye on it for now, if it gets worse I'll go to a clinic or something...
