On Sunday, I did a muddy boggy 5 miler round Dartmoor. This afternoon, I noticed the back of my right knee was sore and when I looked at it, I've got a bright red spot in the crease where my hamstrings go. Now it's hot to touch and quite firm, like there's a lump below my knee joint. The redness looks like it's tracking both above and below the main spot. Is it likely I was bitten by something on Sunday?
I've got something similar on the inside edge of my left knee which looks like a blister, again with redness around it, but it's not as large or painful as the one on the right.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm at hospital tomorrow for pre op checks before an operation next week and don't want to have to postpone it.
It's OK............ I have researched a cure for you
applying dried toads to relieve the pain of the buboes by absorbing the "poisons,"
It's not a problem. Don't thank me. Least I could do.......
How long do we have?
My elder two are still in bed. Should I wake them to tell them I love them before we go bang?
Four years, according to what I read, Mrs P.
Then there will be a light ray coming out of the Indian Ocean.
So says the Metro paper.
It sounds as though you may have been bitten by a horse fly.
I was bitten twice at Totnes on the back of my ankle and it went hot and hard like you've described. My ankle swelled to twice it's normal size too. I took anti-histamine and rubbed ibrobrufen gel on the area and it went down after a day or two.
...and I've pulled out of Sunday's r*ce .
That was just to prove I too can be sensible and mature
Still if that hardon collider thing works .....before we go bang?
lol so if it was the end of the world we all know what you would be doing !
ooops! How very Freudian
