Hi,
   What you are describing are Premarin side effects. Headache with bruising are seen in patients taking Premarin. Skin bruising might be an indication of effect of the medicine on liver. I would advise you to consult your doctor as soon as possible.

Reply to Dr PG M.D.'s Post: COULD THERE BE ANYTHING ELSE THAT I NEED TO MAKE SURE THEY CHECK WHEN I GO TO THE DR ???AND WHY WOULD THIS BE NOW AFTER YEARS OF TAKING PREMARIN???
Expert:  Dr PG M.D. replied 6 years ago.
You are right. Mostly the reaction to a medicine occur when started initially. But sometimes in chronic use, the liver can get affected. The bruising is because of a bleeding disorder. The cause has to be seen. Knowing our history, the most probable cause seem Premarin. Other causes can be old liver infection, bone marrow diseases, other liver diseases, DIC etc. All these conditions a be ruled out by various blood tests. So, you will need to consult your doctor as soon as possible.

Hi,
For all the different bleeding disorders, there are specialized tests. But these all these tests cannot be done in you without a clue as to what the problem is. So, in the beginning basic blood tests will be required like
- complete blood count,
- hemoglobin levels
- ESR
- Bleeding time and clotting time
- peripheral blood film
- liver function test
On evaluating these results then the next step is to whether get further tests like bone marrow biopsy etc.
Regards,
Dr. PG
