There's a condition: called Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP) that can cause bumps & bruises on the shins from leaking of tiny blood vessels called capillaries. Usually the leaking is confined to the skin & goes away own its own. However, HSP can affect other organs, like the kidneys & joints., it's important to see a doctor for an accurate diagnosis & evaluation. Best wishes! Dr. Anne. ...Read more

Be seen: I would be seen and evaluated for a possible coagulopathy. Bruising is essentially bleeding in the soft tissues; and what you are describing with the red spots could also be associated with spontaneous bleeding. It might be a good idea to be seen just to make sure you don't have a blood disorder; not to say you have one, but it would be wise to be seen. ...Read more

Joint pain may feel worse at nighttime : This is because the body has a small amount of extracellular fluid that in some ways moves around and if a joint or limb is relatively motionless and gravity is no longer "pulling" these fluids toward the feet then the other parts of the body swell to some extent. That is why many will have their face and hands feel "puffy" in the morning and why people with fluid in there lungs need to sleep up on pillows. Of course this is a very simplistic explanation but ti may explain the phenomena that someone like your self is alluding to. Now the other question is why does a healthy person in their 20s ask this question. If a woman in her twenties has increased joint pain and swellng then it is a good time to talk to a pcp regrinding some simple blood work for ruling out endocrine ( thyroid, diabetes etc) or inflammatory issues as well as other things such as lyme etc. Not to be scary but it makes sense to start with a proper evaluation, history and exam and get evaluated . As this question is labeled with hand pain and thumb arthritis then one also about tendinitis such as dequervains and other common issues. I am differentiating here between isolated hand pain where i would not necessarily seek a work up vs multiple joint complaints where i would. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Concerning...: Are you having any other symptoms such as fevers, unexplained weight loss, new onset fatigue? Any lumps anywhere else on your body? Is the lump tender to the touch?
