Knees

90d

My bruises don’t show up. The muscle gets sore yeah, but it doesn’t get discolored at all. Does anyone know the reason for this? I have Ehlers Danlos and even have joint dislocations that don’t bruise in the slightest.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)

Spontaneous ecchymoses

    i had no idea other people had this!! I get this too, it only very very very rarely swells or sometimes the most colour a bruise gets is a beer very faint yellow but that's it and it's very rare! I'm not diagnosed with EDS but I'm looking at what people have posted because I feel like I relate so much to what lots of people describe they suffer with daily, and I think I could have hEDS :)

    I was diagnosed at very young age and sometimes I just swell up like a balloon. When I get a scratch it’s turns into scars instead.

    Yeah I don't bruise colorfully unless it's a really deep/nasty one

    This happens to me (diagnosed eds). Doc explained that my tissue can’t hold the fluid that causes swelling and bruising
