    How did you manage that if you were awake?
    I don't exactly know. I was fixing a bike with a wrench, next thing I know my arm spasms and I punch myself in the face. Bloody hurt as well. Eyes watered and everything.

    Serious comment you might have an iron deficiancy and/or be anemic.
    It's nothing to worry over but if it is annoying or a problem for you it might be good to see your gp who, if you do have an iron deficiancy, would prescribe iron supplements.. or you could just get some multivitamins containing +iron because multivitamins are good for you no matter what.
    If it turns out you are anemic its nothing serious to worry about and the doctor could prescribe you something.
    It may feel silly to go to your doctor over something like this but random bruising is a symptom of iron deficiancy.
    If you've recently had your period you might just be low on iron if it was a bit of an...exciting period...

    Think of another option. How about you wrap a blanket around yourself and keep your arms out (:naughty:) ?

    I'm not a doctor or anything but my sister has 'exciting periods' as she calls them and has to take iron tablets during and after. she finds loads of random bruising popping up on her arms and upper legs and the doctor told her it was nothing to worry about and just to take the tablets. Seems to of helped her.
    Did say go to the doctor and ask, if it's bothering her. Wasn't trying to diagnose just tell her to see doctor if it's annoying and interfering with what she can wear etc.
