Yes, bulimia causes random bruising. It's a very common side effect of bulimia.

What are your bruises from?  

Am I at risk too ?  I have been bulimic for 3 and ahalf years now and Im scared.

I feel so alone and my doctor said I might die.

Hey,
I just wanted to let you know that i have the same problem. I have horrible bruises up and down my legs, and have had them for about three years. I have been bulimic for about four now.

Lack of proper nutrients and vitamins can make your skin and body more prone to bruising. I've never heard of them showing up out of nowhere, but I do know that it is very easy to accumulate them.
