10 Serious RA Symptoms to Never Ignore
There's more than joint pain to watch out for.
10. Suddenly bruising easily
If you find you’re suddenly bruising very easily, you could be experiencing a complication from rheumatoid arthritis that lowers your blood platelet count, Mandell says.
That could either be because of your treatment, or due to the disease itself.
Be sure to see your doctor soon so you can get a blood platelet count. When blood platelet counts are very low, you are at increased risk of bruising and may experience serious bleeding.
