My legs are covered in bruises and my shins hurt. I've had problems with nause, bleeding gums, and night sweats.

Have a medical check: You should go see your doctor and have them check you and run some simple tests like a CBC and platelet count. I hope you do not have low platelet count. This would be my first thought. But many blood disorders can cause bruising especially if the platelets counts are low due to lack of production in the bone marrow or increased consumption like in itp.

What causes gum bleeding?

What causes gum bleeding?

Inflammation: Bleeding gums is most often from improper hygiene. When plaque bacteria are not completely cleaned from your teeth, the byproducts of their "living" on your teeth causes an inflammation in your gums and with inflammation comes increased blood flow. There are some systemic diseases that can cause bleeding gums as well, but it's usually dental plaque. Check with your dentist for an evaluation.

What are the causes of children's bleeding gums?

Poor oral hygiene: Poor oral hygiene effort (brushing and flossing) along with frequent occurence of food impaction areas (stainless steel crown margin, diastema and/or crowding) causing localized gingival inflammation. Most of these food impactions will result in cavities development and gingivitis but rarely lead to bone loss or periodontitis except in the case of ljp of which neutrophil function defect is found.

Could it be something bad if I have bleeding gums?

Could it be something bad if I have bleeding gums?

Could be: Could be. However, the most common cause of gum bleeding is inflammation of the gum itself- i.e. Gingivitis. Other conditions that decrease platelet level or affect clotting system also can give you bleeding in the gum. Oral hygiene is important. See your dentist for dental/gum cleaning. However, if bleeding is excessive, you will need to see your primary doctor or perhaps a hematologist.

What should you do to stop gum bleeding when flossing?

What should you do to stop gum bleeding when flossing?

A few days but....: Don't 'pop' the floss between your teeth and hitting the gums. Gently see-saw the floss between your teeth slowly. Once you get between the teeth gently go under the gumline to remove any plaque. I like to floss after brushing before rinsing to help push the toothpaste chemicals between the teeth. You can also rinse with warm salt water to help sore gums and keep current with your dental exams.

I sever from gum bleeding and sometimes swelling. What can I do to have a healthy gum.?

Cleaning ; hand work: Gum bleeding ; swelling are the result of dental plaque (bacteria) not being removed from the teeth/gums. First you need a professional teeth cleaning to remove tartar (calculus) which is sharp/irritating to the gums. Next comes dedicated work by you at home. This is done by proper brushing, flossing, and use of anti-bacterial mouth rinses. Your gums will bleed at first but will stop in few days.
