Please help I have been chronically bruising in my thighs and calfs for several months now and I am not bumping into things. A couple of days before the bruise shows up the area will start to hurt then the bruise slowly shows up and gradually gets bigger. Any ideas would greatly be appreciated I go to the doctor on Wed. and would like to know the right questions to ask.

  • The problem is probably with the veins. It can be phlebothrombosis...

I later found out that I had gluten intolerance. After I stopped eating gluten, I no longer got bruises.

  • I had three more bruises show up today. I am at a complete loss how they got there I didn't run into anything and one is rather large. What should I ask them to test for?
