Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that your history is insufficient to suggest anything . By bruising if you mean they are tender with swelling it can be synovitis and suggestive of arthritis . Rest if there is history of some exertion it can be due to fatigue . You have to send a detailed problem . Take care. Dr. Shruti
