BRUISES ON LEFT LEG ONLY, IN A LINE

About two days ago I noticed a bruise on my left leg, upper inner  thigh area. Then a day later in gym class I notice about 5 other significant bruises on my inner left leg going all the way down towards the ankle. They hurt when I touch them, and I do not recollect doing anything that would cause this streak of purple bruises. There are no bruises on my right leg. Just wondering if anyone has any input

Probably broken capillaries from strenous exercise. I get them on my calves if I run up stairs or bike. You must favour your left leg.
I've been getting this for over 10 years and am still alive.

Good luck.

I have also had leg bruising each and every month since April.  Went to the doctor and my blood work is fine but still getting the bruises.  Apparently it can be due to ibuprophen, my asthma inhaler, diet and now estrogen surges as it happens the same time each and every month
