Bruising on arms and legs

Hi everyone, I have SLE Lupus and I get bruises on my arms and legs is that normal???
SafariMom responded:
From what I have read it is. Have you been tested for Hughes Syndrome "sticky blood". Hughes is common in patients with lupus and can cause bruising. Also some of the lupus medications can cause lupus.

I havent been diagnosed yet, but have lots of bruises, and not on any medications yet. Waiting to get to the doctor for test.

If you are on any steroids, you will bruise after a while very easily and skin will become thin, making bruising an everyday occurrence.
If I bump anywhere on hands or legs I get HUGE bruises so easily.
