In brief: "Normal bruising"

Bruising on the lower extremities is likely "normal bruising" if your platelet count and coagulation studies were normal.
It's not unusual to not remember or notice bumping into furniture etc and to develop mild bruising. This type of bruising particularly common in overweight women. Easy bruising is more significant if there are 5 or more bruises present, each greater than 1 cm in diameter.
