Within the last week I have had 2 blood blisters on the inside of my cheek. I have never had a blood blister in my mouth before and after researching the internet for a cause I found out it could be caused by a vitamin defincency. Has anyone else have this problem?

That sounds so weird. When I clicked on the link, I thought for sure this was going to be in the wrong section by accident...
Did your research say which vitamin it's caused by?

When did you last have lab work drawn, and was it a full bariatric specific panel? I'd be calling my doctor, in any case!!

Jodi - I'd be inclined to get it checked out by the doc. Blood blisters in the mouth could be caused by a number of things.

My weight loss surgery got me to my goal weight and I'm proud to share my story.

It's the only way I know of eliminating the prejudice that surrounds bariatric surgery.

Vitamin C and B-12, I just had my bloodwork and everything came back great! It's just scary because this never happend to me before.
