deep pain with bruising can be due to trauma. In women it is common due to osteoporosis. Hence it is important to rule out the causes of osteoporosis and also to treat the cause of pain. I would advise you to get a mri of your lumbosacral spine and a lab investigation of hemoglobin, serum calcium etc. With these reports kindly consult your physician for further management, i hope i have answered your query. Take care

Hi Heather,
Welcome to HCM.
Your complaint of deep aching pains on right lower back and buttocks and hips and knees with bruising suggest that you may be sufferring from some bleeding disorder like hemophilia.Get your PT/CT and bleeding time done at a good laboratory and get back to me with the results---I will provide you further advice.Take care.
