I might be an alien:

So these bumps are weird.

I  have been doing pretty good with maintaining my gym visits, since the hubs returned home. But I sort of loath running, since it makes me feel inferior in every way. I have no stamina and I've been working on it for awhile now. Oh well. So I reverted to the trusty power-walk. I was going strong with this for, oooh about a week. Then I started feeling tightness and pain right where the bumps are pictured above. So, I made an effort to really focus on stretching prior to getting my power-walk on! Yeah... that didn't help. I still found myself stopping 10-12 mins in to stretch or stop or move to the bike or elliptical due to the pain. After about a week of this constant pain in the tushy I finally thought to look at my leg (since you know it hurts). And, above is what I found...

I shared this on Facebook (obvi.) and was offered a few suggestions: beginnings of vericose veins, muscle hernia or alien.

I'm going with alien, but I'll let the doctor tell me tomorrow.

I would go with alien too. Good luck on the running. I had to work up my stamina on the elliptical for months before I tried running. After months and months (okay, years), I am at 1.5 miles in less than 15 minutes on good days which is amazing for me.

My aunt has these & they turned out to be her veins. I think she would have preferred to be told she was part alien haha.

Good luck at the doctors tomorrow :)

Yikesabee!! I hope the doc can tell you what it really is. Alien would be my only suggestion too.

I had bumps just like that! Crazy. Anyways, I went to my doc, and there was a special name for them it was long and doctorish, anyways the jest of it was. I had started new birth control and it was the change of hormones in my body. Weird. Hope it's something silly like that! And not something serious!
