Dark purple bruises, not painful showing up. Cause?

I have had strange, but not painful, bruises showing up on my inner ankle for the last few days. The newest one showed up this afternoon after wearing tennis shoes today (shoes are not tight). Bruises are very dark purple and have appeared over the last few days - no trauma , no known cause. Any idea what might be causing this? I take Cymbalta, Tylenol , and Meloxicam for arthritis .
