You might be experiencing the side effects of too much Vit K. Bruises are blood under the skin, from bleeding after an injury to a blood vessel. I know if you are taking Coumadin to thin your blood and you eat too much K, you bruise. I hope this helps! I agree you should have a doctor check you out.

Blessings,

I didn't know that low iron was connected to bruising. I bruised easily even before I became a vegetarian, and I am routinely deferred at the Red Cross because my iron is too low (although I'm not actually anemic).

Definitely have your blood checked. I was severely anemic and my b12 completely bottomed out when I first gave up red meat before getting enough from plant sources (my hair started falling out like mad & all I wanted to do was sleep). I now take an iron supplement, a b complex sublingual (you can get this at the drug store or Walmart) and I'm down to monthly b12 shots (I was getting them weekly).

Help me get to 70,000 steps this week. Join me on Fitbit www.fitbit.com/user/26T84Y

You might need to supplement with B vitamins especially B12?

Was it from the needle entry point, or just a bruise (sorry, don't know what a core armband is).

I'd say to keep an eye out to see if it's a regular occurrence.
It may just be that you bumped yourself (I do that on a regular basis, and forget about it until the bruise shows up on my skin).

If you're otherwise healthy, and the doctor thinks you're eating well, then it's possibly nothing to worry about. If you're duly concerned, speak to your health professional for opinions.

I cook in cast iron when I dont eat raw food and shoot for 100 mg of iron through legumes and leafy greens, but dont always make my number. I have always bruised easily, but when donating blood, was never rejected for iron count. I woke up this morning with a bruise under my core armband, which is lime sized. Need I be concerned?
