A little bit of background before I jump into it. For the past few years I've been irritated by something under my skin. I don't how it got there but when I noticed it, the skin had been broken before so I was curious if it was glass or something alike. Figured it might have been an accident I had as a child or something I didn't notice I did in adult hood. The broken skin could be completely irrelevant though. So after the years have passed I got sick of feeling this what ever under my skin. It was hard but small, a few mm long, maybe about 5 but sharp feeling. So tonight I decided to take it out. Why? I don't do hospitals. Got Mersa and surgery because of a hospital, plus I don't trust misdiagnosis to not happen. Regardless, its out. I don't have a way to upload pictures of it or the light damage I caused to my leg but I do plan on uploading tomorrow.

What I pulled out seems like a hard tissue kinda like a plant seed. It was in the layers of skin on my leg pretty far in but not past the skin. I spent the time cutting my skin and eventually I got to the spot it was sitting. IT was covered in a layer of skin that I had not cut into and as I tried squeezing it out with GREAT pressure... it was like a water balloon being held to its popping point but no pop. so I started to cut the skin. As I did, it started to fall into pieces. So I sit here with the red dark brown tinted substance and confusion..

Any thoughts? I know enough info is not given and maybe the pictures will help but of course I want to jump on this as soon as possible.

It sounds like a kind of cyst. Not sure if it would be classified as a "skin cyst" or something else. Some are watery, kind of balloon-like and some can be hard nodules, sometimes floating in a watery sack or otherwise attached to tissue directly. That would be my best guess.

Dont be an idiot .. get to a doc and get your leg cleaned out and properly stitched up.
You may not like hospitals but its better than losing a leg because you decided to operate on yourself an ended up with an infection .

You may want to give this little chart a look,

Maybe you can narrow it down and then google for pics of that type.

Hope that helps!

You know you have a problem when you perform minor surgery on yourself and then ask strangers on a conspiracy site what to do next, rather than seeking some professional medical help.

I don't think the surgery I had done is nearly as bad as you think. Even rubbing alcohol didn't burn. oddly.

So you think you did ok, but you also think it's odd that rubbing alcohol did not produce the expected nerve-related sensation?

Hmmmm

I dont like the doc either man, 2 weeks ago I had to go to the emergency room, because my left eye was not working normally(by which I mean it was blurry and I was seeing a light in the top left corner of my left eye only.), and I was feeling odd. Like a little wobbly, not quite faint, but not my normal solid self.

Turns out I had very high blood pressure, now I drink less, smoke less, and take an aspirin in the morning.

I did not even realize how bad I was feeling for how long, until this week. O honestly feel better than I have for about a year. I would never have known if I hadnt gone to the doc.

Point is, they get paid the big bucks for a reason.

Ask around, find a doc you know has a good rep, and make an appointment. It cant hurt, if you dont like what he says get another oppinion.

When something foreign enters the body, it's not uncommon for the body to encase it in tissue so it stops being such a pain. Could have been a wood or metal splinter that has since desolved.

Suggestions, some of which I've already heard.

I already know it's an alien implant because the implant told me so, duh

(This is off topic for a reason, to give "oblvion" a bit of medical advice he seems to need.)

I'm not a doctor, but I know enough about high blood pressure that an aspirin a day is not a fixall. If your BP is that high (over 130 in the states) that is where treatment with meds starts, then you need meds not an aspirin. They are usually very cheap. The aspirin is to help ease the possibility of a stroke or heart attack brought on by the high BP, not a remedy for it.

The pictures are uploading to my email, eta: within the half.



I've uploaded them to my library but they aren't showing up when trying to access them in a thread.

You should use your insurance. By that I mean you need to go to the doc for anything and everything. Even if it is minor. So you can stock up on the antibiotics they prescribe. You need to be prepared.
