    I'm gonna go to the doctor tomorrow, but it's been there for a few days. It's sore if I jog/rollerblade but doesnt bother me any other time. It's about the size of a quarter, and doesnt hurt if I push on it... any idea what it could be? no pics

    I have a spot like that too..I've always wondered what it is, but it's never painful and I've never had a problem. Is it raised from the skin? Mine feels kind of like a little bubble. I usually notice it after long runs so..yeah. I have no clue, really :o

    Yea, it probably sticks up 1/8th inch, it's not that visable with the hair on my leg, but I can feel it. It was really starting to bother me 20 mins ago when I was rollerblading, I had to cut my workout short :wtc:

    I had a huge bump in my lower abdomen the other day and I thought it was a hernia, but I put a heating pad on it and it ended up going away. I guess it was just a muscle knot. :dunno:

    Sounds similar to what happen to me. I walked 6-7 blocks on my lunch break one day to hit up the ATM. Coming back my left leg when numb, I could barley move it. My foot just flopped in front of the right.

    I got in, sat at my desk and lifted my leg. On my shin was this large bubble, kinda squishy. After a cple hours it went away and the feeling came back to my foot.

    I went to the hospital after work. The said there is no viens on anything that cross that bone, they test for a bloodclot and could find nothing. They couldn't provide me any information.

    Walking long distances still give me a funny feeling in that leg's shin area but so far that has never happened again.
