Muscles feel bruised when pressed on

Posted , 2 users are following.

When i press on certain spots on my thigh, calves,bicep, and upper chest near my shoulders it feels like their bruised but theirs no visible bruising. Ive read something called trigger points but really couldn't see a cause other than fibromyalgia. Any thoughts on what could cause this?

    Hi Michael, I have the same symptom. No matter where I press on my body it feels like a bruise. I'm 47 years old and I was diagnosed a few months ago with Fibromyalgia. I've experienced chronic pain and injuries since I was 16 years old. My other symptoms are muscle aches & pain, fatigue, trouble sleeping, neuropothy, and irritable bowls. What has helped is short walks, exercise in a warm pool, Cymbalta, accupuncture, and Chinese herbs.
