So im having a problem, im in the military so I have to run pretty regularly. Recently ive been getting these extremely painful bumps on my left leg after running. Today I ran 3 miles and it got reallllly painful by the time I was done. I went to the corpsman on base and he told me I need to see a doctor and they are along my veins. Im scheduling an appointment tomorrow to see one, im just wondering if you guys have any idea what this is.
They are soft bumps and go away about an hour after running but while they are there its extremely painful.
Hello, I am having exactly the same problem. I was running for about 10 minutes yesterday when I noticed my lower leg exactly the same location as your getting way to tight and similar bumps had formed. I massaged the area for aout 5 minutes and the bumps were gonne. After almost 1 year of training this was the first time I noticed somehting like this. I haven't seen a doctor yet(wich I will) but I was wondering just in case if you managed to find out what causes this and how it can get fixed.
Please keep us in formed if the doctor could diagnose these. The sensation I experience is burning, tightness, and then I start to lose feeling and function of my leg, i basicly flop it around while walking. It is excrutiating and noone believes me.
did anyone figure this out? i have them, my first one 2 years ago after running, so i stopped, it went away in about an hour, another one today, running treadmill for 8 minutes, i thought it was shin splint pain and thought i could go two more minutes, looked down and there it was.
Looks alot like thefirst bump I got on my calf a few weeks ago, turned out to be a sjperficial thrombophlebitis. But again, I have varicose veins on my calves so it might be something different. I'd say go see the doc, they might send you for an ultrasound to check it out. Doc told me if I would have catch it earlier than I did I could have got away with aspirin but now I got 2 months of warafin to take and constant blood test. Hope you get better
I have several of those bumps on my legs. I've had them for years and I am only growing more. The difference is mind are not painful but do bulge out after a workout. You seem to have a bluish tone around them and I heard that can indicate something is wrong with one of your organs. I recall this from a doctor visit.
