Over the past month, i've had several injuries, typical stuff, cuts, bruises and a sprain. They are nothing unusual when i've gotten them in the past, but they have definately been taking longer to heal lately. Aprrox 4 weeks ago, i woke up from my sleep with a sprained neck. A pain in the neck lol, but i'm no stranger to sleeping funny and WILL get them every so often. Thing is, they are cleared up within 48hrs max. It has taken 3 weeks for this sprain to heal. And when this coincides with a couple of huge bruises that i don't even recall how i got them, taking days to develop and then weeks to clear up, and cuts which seem to be healing slower too. Well, it does make me wonder what may be going on.
I've done some searching online, and the basic examples coming up are in relation to either diabetes, lack of iron, or lack of calcium.
I ruled out diabetes, since i took a test a few years ago, and besides, even if i had a low blood sugar, i'd never suffer when i have such a sweet tooth lol. I get plenty of sugar.
I ruled out anaemia, since i had that as a teen, i know what the symptoms are, since the whites of my eyes are not yellow and nor are my fingernails, i'm pretty confident its not that. I then ruled out lack of calcium, since i consume far too many milk products for that to be feasible in any way at all, milk is my alcohol!!
I expect the 'go see a doctor' response as standard, but if anyone has any other ideas that may circumvent the need to, i'd be happy to hear.
