oK I hope I post in the right area if not help put it in the right spot please....
On my leg a felt a little sting so I rubbed it if I press in the leg it is like a bump under the skin. Well it hurts somewhat and it looks like a bruise. Sort of like a backwards bruise does that make since... Anyone know what this could be...

It is under my jeans and I have been inside all day. It is only 31 here and snowing am not dumb LOL The weird part is it hurts to touch it like a bruise. It is not raised at all and it is a light shade of purple. Then I feel it when I walk. I was just praying it was not a blood clot.

Given the part of the US we are in, I suggest a trip to the ER as the widows are still indoors this time of year.

Yes I noticed you are in Utah like me. I am trying to get hold of the doc now. There does not seem to be a mark from a bit are anything. I looks just like a bruise.

Looks like a bruise on my calf and it stings sort of. It hurt worse earlier but I kept touching it. Was weird how the bump is inside the calf.

I was looking for decent spider bite pics for you, but the only one I found was tiny and of a bite a few days old.

Advice though is in case it is a bite, wash it really well, and keep an eye on it as long as you feel alright otherwise, if you start feeling at all sick, or different, don't hesitate to get to the ER.

Yes that is 100% excellent advice and I will do that. I don't feel bad leg isn't swollen just feel like a bruise with More of a punch.

Brown recluse spiders leave a very nasty bite that festers and spreads. They are very serious if not treated right away. I think that black widow bites make you sick right away because their poison works on the central nervous system..

My son built a immunity to Black Widows because he was bit so much. He loves spiders. SO far I am in Utan now and I do not see many.

I find them on my patio hiding under my garden bench every year.

Black widows don't often inject their venom when they bite, so not so much a worry as recluse.
I've known a few recluse vicitims, and from what they say, you'll know immediately that you've been bitten when they chomp on you.


Lucky for you, you're in Northern Utah, not so much worry that your son might bring a tarantula home

LOL I take it you are in Southern Utah Lucky one. I am in the middle of crap weather. I am next to Idaho so the weather has been awful
post #14 of 26
Central, Utah, Orem to be exact, but there is one native species in the area.
We also consider Idaho to be Northern Utah, except the panhandle, that's Eastern Washington


If it makes you feel better, the weather isn't much better here.
72 on Monday, down to the mid 50's with rain, then snow this morning.

My good friend is in Orem I was there last weekend and the weekend before. It was beautiful. I might be moving down that way if I can figure it out.

from what ive heard a blood clot would make your leg feel warm to the touch and your leg would feel sore ive never heard of a clot causing just a small bump. but if your worried a trip or call to the dr is worth it.
post #17 of 26
Wow sounds painful. Hope you get it all cleared up soon.
post #18 of 26
Well what ever it is i hope it goes away soon

It does not hurt this morning maybe a little to the touch, but it is a nasty bruise.
post #20 of 26
Did u figure it out? Maybe you accidently bumped it on something, and it bruised up(swelled). How is it today? If it continues to bug you, I would go see a dr.

I did call Dr Walker and he said he thinks my iron and potassium levels are low again so to eat 2 bananas and he told me to take a few of my iron supplaments. Then on Monday we will do a blood test again. I think I might of hit it. It is a bruise there is no swelling. He said I could of also broke a blood vessel.

Ahh I see Well yeah thats true it could be a broken blood vessel. I know I freak out over the littlest things if I find something odd or weird on my body! Good to know that its nothing too serious, but do keep us posted please.

I freaked out because after my stroke I was asked if I had a blood clot and I did not see it. They took blood and it was OK but I know am very cautious maybe overly.
