Hep and Bruising

I was diagnosed with hep C many years ago from heroin addiction, I have been done with heroin for almost 3 years now, i drink approximately 6 beers a day now tho, and have been for these past 3 years..i know i'm substituting, and i'm just glad to be off the needle...but i have been noticing these bruises on my shins, with no idea where they come from, no falls, no injuries, just bruising..and today i noticed a new one on the top of my foot, just below my toes...i have searched the internet to try to find answers, and whether or not the random bruising is related to the Hep..all i can find is topics such as 'easy bruising', and such..but i can't see where i could fall under a topic such as that when i'm not even getting injured, or bumped to 'bruise easily'...Usually i notice them in the morning, like they just appear overnite while i'm sleeping....any ideas?
