Soreness of a bruise but nothing there?

I keep getting this on my legs. Different places and can be either leg. Currently it feels like a have a very sore bruise on the front of thigh and another on the shin of my left leg. But there is nothing there - skin looks completely normal but if I touch it then I feel the bruised feeling. Had it a week ago on the side of my knee on the other leg.

What the hell is this? So odd!

I have had a load of other weird things that come and go recently so had a blood test today but I didn't mention the bruise feeling (will when I go back). Other symptoms are:-

Blurred vision in mornings (but not always)
Sweet smell to urine in the morning (but only every now and then)
Extreme tiredness just before period
Bloating (not often but to the point that trousers are uncomfortable when I do)
Weight gain without diet change
Dry mouth sometimes
Nausea sometimes
Stabbing pains in upper back every now and then

It all sounds like nothing since it is so sporadic but I seem to have SOMETHING every day.

Health wise I am obese, I smoke and drink every day (I know not doing myself any favours), I have gallstones but they aren't giving me any pain, stage 4 endometriosis and a large ovarian cyst which is being watched at the moment.

Anyway regarding the bruises (back to the point but I thought some of that might be useful!) - any ideas?

I have fibromyalgia and my whole body feels bruised but with no actual bruise.

What blood test did you have?

Have you been checked for Diabetes? Sweet urine and blurry vision could both be symptoms, but no idea if the bruised feeling would be connected.

I think it was a full blood count and they were checking for diabetes too

I was checked for diabetes a couple of years ago and it was fine then
