Marlee, the outside of my left thigh is like how you described it, "a washboard". I can't see the lumps, but I can sure feel them and they hurt!! I have one lump, mid back, just to the left of my spine too. I haven't found any others. I had these lumps ultrasounded a couple of years ago. The diagnosis was "lupus like tissue". Whatever.... Because EVERYTHING is related to lupus if you have it! LOL.
So we'll see what my rheumy thinks.
All I know is that if I have both disorders, no wonder I feel like crap.... At least my lupus is quiet. Something has to go right!!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
