I am a 40yr old female.
Ive have had this condition for over 3 years without any respite.
I have had X rays, blood tests, biopsy, scans you name it!
For 3 years i have had painful red lumps and bruises on the front sides and back of my calves, Swollen ankles and knees often accompanying them.
I have to take care when travelling/flying. I am very aware of how ugly they look and am very consious of them in the summer.
As one lumps disapears and leaves a bruise, another one appears, at the moment i have 6 on my left leg and 5 on my right leg including one that is 4inches long and 2 inches wide that looks like a nasty bruise, this one has been there for the last 3 months.
I have read that the lumps disapear after 6 weeks, not in my case, i havent had a break from this condition since day 1. As yet, no underlying condition has been found, my consultant has just prescribed the drug DAPSONE.. The side effects this drug can cause are quite worrying so im undecided as to wether to forget the drug and continue to live with the pain and the lumps.
