Brief Answer:
You may need blood investigation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
I have studied your case.
There is possibility of post partum arthritis.
I will advise you blood investigation like CBC,ESR,CRP.RA TEST,ACCP. to rule out infection and arthritis.
You may need to consult your doctor for clinical examination and further management.
Bruising on legs can be due to venous congestion.
