Behind My Knee Bruise

I have had a dry cough for over a month now and metallic taste in my mouth after coughing. & a bruise came up behind my knee overnight. ?
Medical care: I don't know what risk factors you might have for an underlying cause, but,regardless, a cough that lasts a month or more requires evaluation. The metallic taste might be an associated symptom, especially if you have infection in your sinuses or bronchial passages. As to the bruise behind your knee, only further evaluation will reveal what's causing it. ...Read more
Can the blood clot behind my knee dislodge if i hit my shin against shower rail? Slight bruise sz of quarter with with a slight bump. On xarelto 20 mg

Ouch!: I'm guessing you probably have a bruise, and you may be a bit sore. But, overall, your exercise is probably doing you far more good than harm! you may want to hold off on the leg curls until you're less sore (if it hurts), or try a different exercise to work your hamstrings. Btw, it might be time to mix it up a little and do something different: swimming or a spin class, for example. Good luck. ...Read more
