Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Do you have any other symp***** *****ke vision changes or nausea, headache?
Dark bruising is likely due to the leakage of the blood from the capillaries under the eye area.
THiscan occur from gabapentin side effect as it can thin the blood sometimes.
Aspirin, ibuprofen or any other Non steroid anti inflammatory medication can cause such bleeding as well.
Usually not concerning in the absence of any other symptoms.
