Help, I think I have Scurvy!
Hi! I think I have scurvy maybe. I went to the Doc for bruises on my legs, but they didn’t run any tests. they just said that it may be scurvy and to increase my vitamin C. I’ve been eating oranges and brocolli and such since(like a month), but i still have bruises, and newly this morning i have something that seems to be called “petechiae.”(little red spots.. they’re about the size od a beebee) None of my bruises hurt and I can’t remember where I got them. But if it’s scurvy, why isn’t it going away with an intake of Vitamin C? Do i need something with Vitamin C in order to metabolise it? I realy should stop surfing the web. I’m going to become a hyperchondriac.
p.s. - I should also note i had a bloody nose for no reason last week and have been super moody… mind the moodiness i was chalking up to my girly hormones. lol.
Anyway, any thoughts? I don’t wanna be pushy to a doctor over nothing…
