I’m covered in bruises from Jiu-Jitsu. They go from my ankles to my shoulders. I have bruises on my bruises. At first I thought it was just my poor BJJ technique. But over time I notices bruises on my wrists. How could that be poor technique? I found out aspirin was the culprit. I am talking aspirin for my niacin therapy. It helps stop the flushing. I was taking 325mg (one regular pill) each night. Aspirin helps stop clotting. That is why I was getting such huge and nasty bruises. I’ve stopped taking it this week. Tonight is the first night without it. It should be interesting if I bruise. A friend has told me it might be a blood disorder and I should get tested if I keep bruising after dropping the aspirin. He had a similar case in his school or dojo.
