Line of bumps on my leg not scaly Not bug bite or itchy muscle under it cramps badly, cramping getting worse right below rash. Dime sized bumps

There are few rashes: ...that are truly painful. One of them is Herpes Zoster (shingles). They tend to form linear clusters like you described, Because treatment is available that may hasten the recovery from shingles and prevent lingering pain, I advise you to see a doctor. Keep in mind that this is an educated guess, but a guess nonetheless. Hope this helps! Dr. Anne Read more

See a doctor: You describe so many symptoms that it very difficult to tell what is going on, especially without some type of time frame (i.e. How long these symptoms have been going on?) Rashes appearing on your body could be a sign of a serious reaction to something. You should be evaluated by a doctor. Seeing a rash is usually the most important diagnostic technique. Read more

Tight right calf muscle for @ 1 week. Worse with rest, seems tingling /burning/ itchy at night in bed. Not hot or discolored. Thoughts?

Tight right calf muscle for @ 1 week. Worse with rest, seems tingling /burning/ itchy at night in bed. Not hot or discolored. Thoughts?

Calf discomfort: One possibility is congestion in the calf veins which builds up during the day's activity on your feet. Elevating the leg should relieve that discomfort, however. Irritability of calf nerves or muscles may be a cause. A blood clot in a calf vein usually is accompanied by swelling and tenderness. It's best to have a physician examine your leg and, if deemed advisable, get an ultrasound of the veins Read more

I'm having some abnormal bruising on my upper thigh. I've been itchy due to an allergic reaction n have been scratching my muscle while flexed. Help!

Itching: When you scratch for an extended period of time you may bruise your skin, it will heal on its own but you need to control the itch. Take an antihistamine and apply ice over the area to help with the tenderness. Read more

What is it:red rash on my legs, quite symmetrical (not itchy, not flakey, rather discolouration). No other symptoms. Gets more or less red, no pattern?

Rashes: While it is impossible to say with seeing it, my first hunch would be that you are experiencing contact dermatitis. You may have used a new laundry detergent or got a new pair of pants or sox that is causing skin irritation. Try Hydrocortisone 1% cream. If that doesn't work see a dermatologist. Read more

I'm reading online that itchy legs are a symptom of cancer! Is this true?

Rarely: Cancer is not a common reason to have itching on your kegs. Internet is not a good source of information about a common probelm which can have many many causes.
I would advise you to see your family doctor for physical examination to determine why you have the itching probelm and offer you treatment. A skin specialist (dermatologist) can also be helpful if the problem continues unabated. Read more
