Sudden appearance of petechiae

I've just recovered from a 4 day shitstorm of the norovirus. I woke up this morning with loads of petechiae on my legs. Is it one of those "should probably make a GP appt" thing or more of a "weird but normal" thing?

Hmm. I got these from vomiting but only above the collarbone, don't know about legs. Call NHS direct?

Did you throw up quite violently? Kneeling down with head in the loo? It may be from that, I seem to remember that happening to me on my legs and face from severe morning sickness.

If you don't have a fever I think you shouldn't worry, but of course check it out if you're worried.

Nope, only one small puke and the rest was from the uhh other end. No fever or any other unusual symptoms.
