Dear Kathleen, Wow, I've never heard of that. Do you have a good
doctor? Maybe you should research doctors in your area and get a
couple of opinions. I'm sorry I don't have any light to shed on
your awful brusies. I've had them before but there have been reasons,
not just sneezing. But it sounds like a doctor's visit might shed some
light on the subject plus blood tests that will show if you have elevated
protein levels which might indicate general inflamation in your abdomen.
Good luck and let us know. With kindest regards, Sally Grigg
