thanks for the photos

that does look like a bruise on the side of your torso

you should put an ice pack on that area to help decrease pain and swelling.

do you remember hitting that area to cause the bruise?

you could be fighting off a viral infection.

MS can cause fatigue

when was the last time you had blood work to check your blood levels?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I had blood work done last week. I don't remember banging into anything
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

you may have hit the area without knowing

or hit it at night time when you were sleeping.

have you tried an ice pack on the bruised area yet?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
