Had a heart problem 16 months ago, no arteries blocked, no surgery. Put onto what I presume was the standard medication pack, greatly reduced now as I get fitter, down from 6 meds twice a day to one aspirin, one 12.5 carvedilol and two 2.5 ramipril. Bruising easily is a given, looks bloody awful on the arms and hands but GP not too bothered. The problem now is the skin on my arms and hands literally sloughing off even from a minor scrape against a door handle or other solid object, on one occasion I banged my elbow wearing two layers, blood everywhere and a wound that took over two weeks to heal. Anyone experienced similar problems, I have a GP who allocates precisely the same amount of time to a broken leg as she will for a brain tumour bursting in reception.
