Bruising in middle finger, no injury, prickling sensation in finger. Causes for symptoms?

Hi wot does it mean if my middle finger is bruised but I have not hurt it or jammed it in anything? About two weeks ago I felt a prickly sensation in my finger and shortly thereafter my finger came up in a bruise which eventually went away after a week or so. Yesterday I got the same thing again in the middle finger but on a different hand . Any ideas?
