Random bruises on arms and legs, tiredness, increased appetite, difficulty breathing. Causes?

I have been getting random bruises on my arms and legs, pretty small nothing too big but I don t remember hitting myself anywhere. I do bruise easily though. Also I have been very tired and sleepy. I have been eating more than usual, I blame it on the fact that I m not working and I get bored. I also have some trouble breathing , its hard to catch my breath. ....I know this is too many things at once but could there be something causing this?

Thanks for writing to us

Unexplained bruising once in while is understandable but if occurs frequently should be investigated thoroughly since it can indicate an underlying medical condition or ailment.
Many a time bruising can be caused due to liver ailments, kidney diseases and blood disorders. It may also be due to deficiency of vitamin C, vitamin B12, folic acid and vitamin K.
It is best you just visit a doctor for a blood work up, once all the results return normal, there should be absolutely nothing to worry about

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
