Painful, swollen lumps in my legs...

They look bruised. It almost looks like someone beat my legs with a bat. I am pregnant and they just started coming up in the last week. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? I am going to the doctor on Monday but I thought I would see if anyone has ever had this.

Mil had one a couple months back. Hers was a boil or abscess or something. Anyway..a teaspoon of turmeric a day and it was gone.

I have no idea mama but that sounds pretty scary and I would say if it gets worse (or maybe even if it doesn't)  I would go get it checked out before monday.

I have 8 of them in my left leg and 4 on my right leg. It is not a boil. It feels like a deep bruise almost like when I hit my shin on the coffee table.

Hmm maybe swollen lymph nodes? I'd go get checked since they hurt.

Deep vein thrombosis? Are the hot and tender to the touch? If so I would get to the dr soon. It's common in pregnancy but not something you want to wait to see a dr about. It has to do with blood clots in the legs due to poor circulation in pregnancy. Your legs tend to get neglected. I naught even go so far as to say go to the ER or walk in. You don't want to mess around with that stuff.
