What Would Cause Bruising On Calves, Thighs & Stomach Without Injury -

For the past few weeks, I have been noticing many large black and blue spots on these areas. They are not your typical bruise, but a multitude of small ones in a large area. The latest is on my abdomen. I am female, 58, otherwise healthy, although of late have been very tired most all the time.

Answer

Get checked out to see if you are anemic/iron deficient (would explain fatigue too)- Also increase citrus fruit intake daily to help with vitamin C levels. Are you going through menopause and are you having excessive or frequent menstrual bleeding? Your doctor will check your history and the blood work up should point to an answer.
