Current medical status: I have a problem with brusing and blood clotting.
Having bruises with only small impact force might be a sign of a blood clotting disorder. The mechanism of blood clotting is far too complex to cover in depth here. Inadequate quantity or activity by any of the factors might cause a blood clotting disorder. You might want to visit your family doctor and have basic laboratory tests of your blood done. If the results are inconclusive, then he might want to refer you to a specialist in hematology who will further examine your blood.
