Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 5 months ago

Any fever with that or nausea?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No fever, he hasn't been actually sick just felt like he might be sick
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 5 months ago

Well most times a bruise like that doesn't indicate any medical problems

But it could be a sign of low platelets or a liver problem and with the stomach pain you should have a doctor check this out with an exam and blood work

Please let me know if you need any more information

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
