    hello all, I was wondering if there was anyone else who has bruising that is unexplained. I have had them on my arms,legs,at times,now have 2 on my right ankle,don't remember hitting my ankle at all. I still have one on my thigh that has been there for over a month,it is lighter in color but still there (very light purple)…I did also get blood tests to see about my clotting factor? She never got the results back, this is not by the Dr. who took that stupid pill in the morning..LOL Have a great healthy day all. :) P.S. this was the same blood work that I was told I was pre diabetic.
