Dr. John T. Moor answered:

why am I bruising so bad?

Stop anticoagulants

Warfarin_sodium
Bruising is caused by bleeding and implies coagulation problems. Aspirin, NSAIDs, coumadin, plavix, xarelto, some herbals, and many others lead to bleeding. Check for these causes. Otherwise need a hematologist to check blood for lack of clotting factors as easy bruising/bleeding is not a good or natural sign, especially in a young person. Limit trauma.

bruising after root canal?

Uncommon

Bruising is uncommon as a direct result of root canal therapy. The most common explanation is that the bruising or more likely the hematoma, was a result of the local anesthetic injection. Blood thinners in general may exacerbate the incident.

Bruising on stomach no injury?

Ecchymoses

Bruit
Unexplained subcutaneous bleeding should merit a rapid trip to the doctor for evaluation. Spontaneous bleeding of that nature can turn out to be benign, but a full assessment of each individual patient is warranted under these circumstances. Good luck.
