A bruise or worse...: Purple color may mean a bruise or bleeding under the skin. A sore muscle can be some bleeding from broken muscle fibers inside the muscle (called a muscle strain). If a person bleeds easily, there can be a hematoma in the muscle. If there are risk factors for a blood clot in the leg, such as recent surgery, injury, taking ocp's, sitting for several hours, etc..., the E.R. Or a doctor should check. ...Read more

I noticed a strange bruise on my leg today with very dark purple lines going through it. I have no pain and it's not even tender. Should I be worried?
Bruising: Some docs believe that the pulp of citrus will reduce bruising. I doubt it. Some people-esp. Women-bruise easily from minor insults. This is, fortunately, only skin deep. The dark purple are patent veins perhaps more superficial due to the slight swelling of the bruise. This does not raise any red flags. It is simply a personal peculiarity that is not uncommon. ...Read more

Muscle strain: Sometimes the muscles get strained just doing normal activities. Some things that can help are soaks in a warm bath, drinking lots of water (at least 6 large glasses a day), taking a multivitamin and gentle stretches. I hope you are feeling better soon. Walking 30 minutes a day can keep your muscles in good shape. ...Read more
