Watch this 
View More Posts Ignore
I have painful enlongated hard lumps all over under my skin if you rub hard and deep you feel them and they feel like a new bruise would feel like, at first I thought it might be varicois veins, which I have some , but these lumps are all over on my upper legs, arms and here and there on main body. some times they ache and burn other times I don't notice them till I rub lotion or soap on my body any clues as to what they are, I told my doc, he says it just one of the symptoms of FMS.
thanks
blessed be
ENDURA

" hi, i did know someone who had something like that, maybe not the same, but... she had varicose veins, and they disapeard, under the skin, burning and a redish mark, it was flebitis, and can be treated, it is the blood flow that suddenly settles and forms a lump, collects in that area, maybe do a google search on this and see if there is a match in symptoms ??? we do have to be "proactive and look after ourselves" docs dismiss too much when they cannot find a answer... or they give a script so we will just go away :P

huggz and good luck, "

" They might be myofascial trigger points that are knots in the muscles that refer pain elsewhere.

If you're interested in knowing more about them, check out triggerpointbook.com for info on deactivating them. "

" Yes,I have them also.Actually they were on my R-hand/top and hurt like H...!Thats what sent me to Dr. in 06.Dr. thought Fibro. 1st thing and tested me for it,yup,sure enough.Its common for people with Fibro. to get these in varies parts of body.Think they are called nodules,theres always a remote chance of them becoming cancerous.This is about all the info. I have but hope it gives you a SENSE OF COMFORT KNOWING YOUR NOT ALONE.VJI P.S)Rarely do mine hurt. "

" I get those on my feet, breasts and arms. Very painful. If your symptoms change or any moles change, be sure to get them rechecked. "

" It doesn't soound like a sympton of fibro either. It ticks me off when a doc just passes it off as fibro and doesn't refer you to somone who really knows. Do you thing you can take it to your GP and get a more reliable answer? This just sounds like bunk. I would persist with this Endura, how knows what it might be....Wishing you better days....Love ....Helen "
