I was out working in my yard in the spring and got poked in the shin with a branch. It was very painful, and I pulled up my pant leg and saw a couple of raised bumps on my shin. This was not from the branch that poked me. Just banging into anything with the shins, and I was in tears it hurt so bad. I learned to be very careful.
I went to the doctors and after a few tests, was told that it was a spider bite. Yeah right. After a period of time, the lumps got worse and the pain much worse too. THen the next thing I knew, my whole ankle swelled. I went back to the doctor and the same story was told to me. I was bitten by a spider.
Well then I was not happy so had a second opinion at the local walk in clinic. One look at my shin and he diagnosed me with Erythema Nodosum. He wrote down the name and even showed me some pictures of what it looked like from his medical books. It looked just like my right shin and ankle.
