    Can bruise arise because of nerve irritation?

Recently had a discectomy @ L4 L5 and today noticed a nickel sized bruise on the upper part of left calf. I now w/out doubt it is not the result of a bump. It s not sore. I have lots of nerve irritation in my left leg, could this bruise be stemming from the irritation?

Hello,

Thank You for consulting HealthcareMagic!

We cannot say for sure whether it is stemming
from your irritation. Physical examination is mandatory
to assess this since there are variety of other causes
that needs to be ruled out.

Stay healthy and thank you for consulting! You can contact me again anytime, if you need clarifications or further assistance in future. Kindly rate the answer if you are satisfied.
