For the last two or three months I have noticed that the bone below my knee, (the Tibia) has something wrong with it. I have compared the left to the right and something is going wrong with the right one. At first I didn't think much about it, just a little swelling, I thought. Now I think different.
If I put my finger tips on both knee caps and slowly move them down, first the knee caps feel the same, the tendons from the knee cap to the big bone on the front of my right leg seem normal. As soon as I go below the tendon there is a change in my right leg bone. The left one is hard, stick out and runs don down to my shin.
Below the tendon on my right leg, there is no hard bone sticking out. For about an inch and a quarter the bone sinks back about 1/8th of an Inch. Under the skin is a soft knot about the size of a Chicken egg. It sticks out about 18th of an inch. So it is about 1/4 inch thick.
My knee does not hurt, the knot is not sore, but if I rub it very much it has a warm feeling and a very slight tingle/ pain to it. I will put an ice pack on it tonight, I have done that before and it seems to go down a little. My nest doctors appointment is on the 21st, I plan to have a serious talk and I will suggest an MRI to see what is wrong with it. Any of you have similar problem?
