Reoccurring dark purple green bruise on both legs. Not been hit by anything. Cause?

Hi, a few weeks ago I got a very dark purple and green bruise on the left side of thigh and one parallel on the inside of my thigh, both felt like a cramp or knott in my leg. After a week or so they both went away, but appeared on the opposite leg again with a bruise on the inside and parallel on the outside. After those healed up, the bruises have returned to the left leg again.. What could this be? I pay attention to most times that I hit my legs and cannot think when they could have happened. Thanks, AAAAAAA

Dear Friend.
Would like to know your age and if any other preexisting problem you have.
I hope you have not been suffering from fever. And you dont have any family history if some haematological problem.

I would suggest you to get your platelet count, Coagulation profile PT/INR.. aptt..

If everything is normal. Its good. Sometimes there is a thing called as Devil's pinches.

So lets hope your all reports wud be fine.

Review with reports.

Stay Healthy
