What is this?
« on: March 24, 2006, 08:14:00 PM »
About two weeks ago I ran into the edge of a low table - collided just below the knee and a little to the outside.  At the time I expected a bruise but one never showed up. There is NO ongoing difference in appearance.  Exercise/walking/squatting/sitting, etc. do not seem cause much sensation at all and ther is certainly no limit to mobility.  HOWEVER, if I KNEEL on that leg it feels like I'm kneeling on an excruciating raw blister.  So of course I am avoiding kneeling on that leg - which is kind of annoying.  If I manipulate the area with my fingers I can feel a little bit of puffiness and a bit of an enlarge wiggly "vein" and can locate the "spot" that hurts.  Is this something that will eventually heal/go away? Or do I need to have it looked at by a pro?
