Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Bruising without any trauma can be due to deficiency of vitamins C, K, B12, or folic acid. Numbness in leg can be due to vitamin B12 deficiency, diabetes, thyroid disease or spinal and neurological causes like sciatica. You need to consult a physician. Take some vitamin B 12 supplements and Iron pills and if the symptoms persist then get the other causes investigated.

Hope it helps you. Regards.
