So I have a few times in the past like week woken up with weird bruises. They are red, no raised, not painful. And I have no idea how I got them. And I didn't wake up with these ones..they showed up this afternoon. The pic in the replies of my shoulder, I woke up with those. I've been doing some dr.googleing and I am freaking myself out. I know I need to get into a doc ASAP, problem is finding one first. And so here I am asking you ladies, what the hell is going on with me? Any ideas that don't include me thinking I have cancer?...and please no bashing for me posting this, I know you ladies aren't docs..
Eta- also, for idk like months now I have been getting bruises, the purple/black kind that hurt, on my legs. I assumed those were from still cosleeping my youngest and him kicking me. But now im not so sure.

Are you sure it's bruises and not a rash?

Check for anemia and thyroid issues.

That's not shingles.  Shingles is open sores.  And usually in a line.

I googled this- http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/bruises-or-red-blood-spots-under-the-skin
And it has a link to more info on that..which is why I'm sorta freaking my self out. Everything points to something being seriously wrong with me. :(

They don't itch or hurt. I don't even notice unless I look my self or my husband points it out.
