I am noticing bruising on my left leg in the

Patient : I am noticing bruising on my left leg in the back first now the front. I haven't bumped into anything or fallen. The bruises don't hurt but I don't know where they came from. I was diagnosed with a hyperactive thyroid in 2012. I haven't been on any medication for a couple years due to not having any insurance. I'm not sure if that could be the cause of the bruising. Also, the bruises on the back of my left calf was very black when I first noticed it. I've never had that before. It's been there about a week and is now starting to fade away. What is causing this?
