Bruises on thigh. Have bulging disc, numbness, tingling in leg and toes. Any ideas?

I keep getting large bruises on the back of my left thigh & have for years. I'm a 38 year old white male 6'0 190lbs in good shape. I do have lower back problems(bulging disc) & tend to have a lot of tightness in my left hamstring & tingling & numbness in my entire left leg & toes. I do regular physical therapy for my lower back & see a physician regularly. Any ideas about the bizarre bruising? I was recently checked for clots & it came back negative.

Thanks for the query.
bruise might be due to low platelet,
while numbness and tingling in legs might be due to bulge of disc.
This may cause compression on nerves.
Please get platelet levels checked and also meet a neurologist.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
