Nerve compression: Your symptoms sound like more than muscle strain and are consistent with compression or injury to the spinal cord or major spinal nerves possibly from a herniated disc in the lumbar area. Without more information regarding location of your syringomyelia, it is hard to say if that is related. You need to be seen on an urgent basis and may need MRI. Your neurosurgeon knows you best. ...Read more

It may have been a: bruise that has been metabolized and calcium/ iron deposits left behind into a small bump. Or it could be a lipoma (fatty tumor) that is benign but tends to grow. Or it could be a lymph node that enlarges when there is something inflammatory in the area such as infection or trauma. If it continues to bother you, go have a healthcare provider look at it. ...Read more

You need to get: to a healthcare provider to check some blood tests, including platelet function studies and coagulation studies. If you are taking aspirin or some other platelet medicine, then that would explain your bruising. Certain vitamin deficiencies including vitamin K can cause bruising.

Hi. Im a 26 y/o female. I I've been having left calf pain for a few days now, no injury. It feels like a giant bruise and it feels a little harder than the right side. Possible DVT?

Can not always say.: Pain in the calf which persists needs to be watched but you should check & see if there is some swelling or not. If you relax your leg & have someone push your foot & toes back toward the leg & there is pain then you need to have it checked if also swollen. Did you have a muscle cramp this will cause the same pain & hardness. If no better need to get it checked. Hope this is helpful. ...Read more
