What cause so many bruise I am getting brusise all over me for n o reason.

Clotting problem?: Certain medications such as Aspirin and Coumadin (warfarin) can cause you to bruise easily. However, illnesses that interference with platelet function can do the same thing. If you are not taking a medication that is known to cause easy bruising, you should have a full blood work up by your medical doctor as soon as possible to help find the cause.

Bruising: Do you take Aspirin or blood thinners? Some medications cause easier bruising. Could also be a problem with a clotting issue or anemia. I would address this with your primary care doctor who can run some blood tests to make sure everything is okay. If nothing else, it will provide reassurance.

Blood testing: There are many different conditions that may cause spontaneous bruising in children, requiring blood testing to determine the specific cause. Most of these conditions are not true emergencies, but if your child condition is worsening, I advise calling your Pediatrician for advice or go to your local Pediatric urgent care clinic or ER for immediate testing.

Ct scan, 7 kidney stones& calcium build up in right kidney. What causes build up? Could calcium be reason 4 unexplained purple bruises, thigh itchness?

Kidney stones: Most often renal (kidney) stones are the result of dehydration. However, some people are more prone to form stones than others. I would recommend seeing a urologist who can do a complete metabolic workup of your stones, urine and bloodwork. With that info- you and your doctor will have a better idea of why you form stones and how to prevent them in the future.

Any reason why am I randomly getting bruises for no reason?

Coagulopathy: Studies show that women who present with multiple areas of petechiae, purpura, or ecchymosis with no history of trauma sometimes have a coagulation disorder. At your age, TTP or ITP may be a possibility. You need a full CBC, CMP, PT/PTT/INR, Protein C, S, Factor 5, Full history and medications really needed. I recommend you go to Georgetown University and speak with a Hematologist ASAP. Good luck

Low platelets?: You should see your doctor for some screening blood tests. Based on your age, one of the most common reasons for your symptoms is low platelets caused by auto-antibodies. Sometimes this goes away on its own, other times it needs treatment. There are other causes of low platelets, and there are other causes of bruising not associated with platelets. See your doctor.

Why do I have bruises down my spine for no reason?

Posture?: The most common reason that I see skin discoloration over the spinous processes (the superficial bumps that you can feel on the spine) is from chronic pressure on the skin. This occurs from sitting in chairs with poor posture, essentially bruising the skin between the hard chair and the bone underneath. This would be an unusual presentation of a serious problem, but an md eval would be advised.
