A 22-year-old male asked:

Skin issues: There could be a number of reasons this is happening, from an allergic reaction to something that you were exposed to, to bites from insects etc. If there are other people at home who have similar issues, it could be some insect bite. Have your physician take a look at the actual bumps as it helps us figure out what they are. Hope this helps
A female asked:

Possible causes: There are a number of entities that can cause the symptoms that you are having. It appears that a work up has been started (negative mammogram). One thing that comes to mind with pressure that increased with leaning forward would be pericarditis, which is inflammation of the sac around the heart. As your work up appears to be in progress please continue to see your provider. Hope this helps.
A male asked:

Family Medicine 12 years experience
Possible causes: Include dementia. While the age of 57 is young with regards to the development of something like dementia, it can still happen. I would suggest he have an evaluation as there are some deficiencies such as vitamin B12 that can also cause similar symptoms. Hope this helps.
