A while back I posted about I woke up one morning with strange pain in my leg above my knee, and swollen and lumpy there, very sore and tender. Hurts to walk. I kept wrapping it with a stretch bandage thinking it was because I hit my knee really hard the week before and that it would subside. Swelling got worse, more painful, tender, and then last week big yellow bruises appeared at side of knee and on upper thigh and under some of the bruises is a weird sharp little lump, but I didn't hit my leg where the bruises are ever! Doctor put me on Bactrim antibiotics and said it could be from a spider or insect bite - staff infection. But he's perplexed about the bruising. Hurts so bad to walk - have to lie down ALL the time. Does it really help your stomach feel better to take acidophilus, or does it hurt it any? I'm "allergic" to everything it seems, and worried about all these antibiotics. ALso, I'm anemic and also found out my "T3" for thyroid is low, so they're doing more thyroid tests.
