Unknown bruises on leg cantroll bladder, tired, fatigue,

Increased: Increased bruising as you age can be a common problem. It is due to thinning skin and aging blood vessels and usually does not require treatment. Occasionally it can be a sign of an underlying disorder.

- if your bruising seems to be worsening
- if your bruises are large, painful, or seem to appear without cause
- if you are bleeding from other areas such as your gums, nose, or gut
- if you just started a new medication since many such as Plavix (clopidogrel) or Aspirin can increase bruising
- if you have a fever and are feeling ill
