My husband had kiddney failer and not to long ago he has pain from his knees to his ankles if he sit to long it hard to get up get up but with pain?

I would be concerned: To rule out a clot in either of his legs, this would take precedence over other diagnose as this is serious.

Particularly a bee sting, which does not always hurt at the moment. Skin infections can also resemble insect bites at first. If there is any redness, fever and chills, it becomes a mores serious situation. ...Read more

Is the border choppy and irregular, color changes, size larger than head of pencil eraser, itch, drainage. Only by a doctor's exam can it be determined what to do next.

I was hit very hard by a line drive softball on the inside or my leg right above ankle. Since then there has been lots swelling and a hard knot there.

If getting worse in any way, get it checked out ...Read more
