Help make a difference.
O.k. there are 3 so far, does anyone else have painful bumps and lumps on the muscles? (can only tell by feeling them) mostly in thighs and arms? And if so, do you know what they are?
Hi Janice, My husband has been experiencing lumps and bumps in the his upper inner thigh. At the same time the lymph nodes in this area (groin) are enlarged and red, even after the other lumps go away. He has been on different anti-biotics but it always comes back. He is on a new antibiotic now and, if this doesn't help, they are going to perform a biopsy. I'm not sure if this is connected to his MELAS or not??
After being on an antibiotic for 1 month, and also being treated with antifungal meds, my husband's lumps and bumps cleared up for the most part. The doctor said he didn't think it was related to the MELAS and said to call them if the issue returns so.... no biopsy for now.
