I noticed that lately I've been getting bruises on my legs. All of them have been on my legs from my upper thigh down. They are black and blue and hurt.

I've fallen off of chairs and things like that before when I've had seizures but I wonder if I'm walking around the house now running into things while I'm having a seizure. I'm home alone during the day so no one is there to see if I have a seizure, which I'm sure I've had many when I'm alone, and to see what I do during it. I've never walked around when someone is home and I'm having a seizure. Nothing seems to be out of pace either.

Do you have any guesses what you might be bumping into? Do you think it's happened more than once?

Hi valeried,

The same thing happened to me I had bruises all over me but I didn't know how I got them until I had a blood test and I found out that my blood platelet level was way to low and my Dr. had to admit me into the hospital and take me off the drug Depakene that was causing this. You may want to call your Dr. and ask them to do a blood platelet level check if the bruises don't go away or you see more. I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You!

It has happened more than once. I'll see that I've got a bruise somewhere on my leg. They might be big or small and they are very light black and blue not dark. Then maybe a few days or so later there will be another one somewhere else on my leg.

The bruises on my lower legs might be from the coffee table we have. It looks like a huge semi padded box, if you wan't to even consider it padded because there's really no squish to it. I've run into it so many times when I'm walking around. I've hit my toe on it so many times too that I can't believe I haven't broke it.

The ones on my thighs are the ones that I really can't figure out where they might have come from.

Have you considered getting a security camera system like Arlo? The cameras can be set up inside the house for self monitoring...
