Bruising?

Bruising?

Is bruising easily another symptom of RA? I'm waiting to be diagnosed yet, but after speaking to my father today(he has RA), it truly does sound like I have it. I have noticed the past couple of months bruises that seem to come from no where. I finally figured out where they were coming from, I get itchy, then scratch a bunch, and then I get a bruise.

I have always bruised easily - now dry skin, scratch and welts appear on my arms and scar up, it looks terrible. Docs say keep putting lotion on - skin gets thin from prednisone.

I have weird itches too lol. As far as the bruising goes, I know being anemic ( low iron) will do that. I know anemia was one of my symptoms that lead to my RA diagnosis. If I hat helps any
