A 23 year old female patient noticed telangiectatic lines on her body mostly on legs and thighs. Some red spots like petechiae also. She gives history of unexplained bruise on her leg 2 months before. And also some unexplained blood clots on her legs. She also noticed pain over her upper and lateral breast area specially when lying down or she wakes up. Pain was initially mild and occurred sometimes but now its regular and more severe. What can be the diagnosis?

Since I cant relate to any of the causes you described above. I think it is related to something else along with bruises and blood clots.
