I have a small spot one my right back leg that has been their for 2 yrs. It throbs and has a bruise if I rub that spot the bruise gets bigger and darker. I went to the Dr. and she said its just tendanitis and it will go away. Well it hurts all the time and it has not gone away. Any suggestions?

  • I've got a leg pain, too-- not exactly the same thing, but I've done enough research on leg pain to offer a few suggestions.It could possibly be an aneurysm (a bulging in the vein/artery) causing pain. If the anseurysm was leaking, it could cause a bruise. If I were you, I'd ask my doctor to do an ultrasound. That would give you, hopefully, a better idea of what's going on.
