    Has anyone have an issue of bruising? The left side of de of my stomach is very dark black and blue. I was wondering could this be a sign of internal bleeding or maybe liver damage. So confused and worried. My numbers are good, Iā€™m not on meds YET.

    Hi Pat, People with low platelet counts may have bleeding and spontaneous bruising. I would let your treating hematologist know of your symptoms.
