Since, you have lot of health related problems, you have to be investigated systematically, regarding your easy bruising you need to discuss with your doctor about the medications you are taking, because that might be one of the causes, so your doctor might have to adjust the dose of the causative drug and also it might be useful to undergo few tests like platelet count, bleeding time, clotting time etc.
