So i have had pain in my leg for the last month mainly at night thought nothing of it. Its got slowly worse till about 3 weeks ago i noticed a small lump to the bottom inside of my leg i've been meaning to get a gp appointment, but with work, DCs haven't. Recently noticed the lump had over doubled in size, its sort of semi hard/soft dosen't move. You can see the swelling, just and theres sort of a dimple, right below it. The pain over the last few days has gotten worse, not excruciating. its woke me up a couple of times in the night, pain constant dull ache feels in the bone from were the lump is down the shin, painkillers not helping. Righlty or wrongly phoned 111, they said they couldnt do anything today, i need to get an emergency appointment with the Gp tomorrow, ment to be working tomorrow but they advised against it, as it needs a possible urgent investigation with orthopaedics. I asked if they had any idea, they just said defiantly not bursitis/cyst. But other than that they dont know.
I know non of you can diagnose over the internet! But just wondered if anyone has had similar, or might have an idea is im a bit worried!
Shameless bump, could only get a GP appotment for 5;30 this afternoon so presume they won't do anything today. I'm so much pain
You've made the first move, there's nothing more anyone can suggest now. Hope the afternoon goes quickly and you get the help
So been, theyve rulled out stuff like DVT, only thing they medntioned was lipoma but doc said that wouldnt explain pain, unless they were 2 diffrent things. Urgent X ray tommrow, is first step.
Good , hope you get a definite answer tomorrow. And hope it's easily treatable.
