little bumps along my muscles???
the oddest thing happened during my juice feast. at least i think that's when it happened.
when i run my fingers along the muscles in my upper arms i can feel these little bumps all along the muscles. i can feel it in my thighs as well. we aren't talking one or two here... we are talking many... along the length of the muscle.
anyone else have this? anyone have any idea what it is?
i was thinking that perhaps it's the remaining fat, which is getting leaner on my body. perhaps it's just remaining in areas and is feeling bumpy???
hmmm... no one eh? i've been doing extra skin brushing hoping that will assist them to disappear.
i hoped someone would chime in and say... "oh i totally had those when i released weight too... no problem, they'll be gone soon" LOL
WELL..........Its because........I don't know!!! But lets play Doctor. Maybe you are getting SO Healthy and the FAT is Dissolving and this is the way it is suppose to be. I think I can feel the same when I press HARD on My Thighs. Anyway take it from Me...Its NOT a Bad thing because I'm NO Spring Chinken but the other Chickens in the Barn Yard DON'T KNOW IT.

maybe it is fat being released from your muscles-
Im going to use a gross analogy here- you know how certain cuts of meat are fattier- namely ribeyes as opposed to a filet?
considering women carry the majority of their weight around the hip and thigh area, it would make sense that those muscles also contain more fat as well.
just a guess

can't be keratosis pilaris cause it's under the skin not on the skin. ;)
emily, that would make sense... cause it's in my upper arms as well and as a 300 pound woman becoming a 160ish pound woman in a matter of 10 months... that would make sense!
spicy... yup i feel healthy all right!
anyone else wanna play "guess - be a doctor"?
Sorry, I missed the under the skin part. I don't know, in that case, but a qualified dermatologist might be able to give you an idea. You don't have to take the prescription he gives you if you don't want to.
i don't 'do' doctors... so i won't be seeing one. i'm not concerned, just curious is all
I have two things like that... one is on my upper arm... you can't see it, but if I run my hand along it (pressing down fairly hard) it feels like a small lump. Of course I freaked out that it was cancer but at least I know I'm not feeding cancer with anything I eat!
The other one looks like a very small raised lump on my abdomen. NO clue what these things are so I'll be curious to hear more theories!

This just clicked with me ... could be a "fatty lipoma." Sounds scary, but it's just a glob of fat with a membrane around it, sort of like a little sausage. I had one removed from my upper arm a few years ago. It's standard procedure to biopsy these, but I gather that they are not usually dangerous. I have a coworker who grows these regularly ... he has so many scars on his arms that he always wears long sleeves. Another friend tells me that he has several that he and his doctor are "watching." IE, he hasn't had any of them removed.
no it's not like that. it's more like a tiny string of beads - loosely strung - and they are getting smaller.
must be fat and it's leaving my body. it was soooooo apparent to me weeks ago (kept meaning to make a thread and forgetting to do so) and that is when i was doing my juice feast.
i'm voting for fat folks... :P and it's leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaving the building!!!
Glad to hear it's going away. But if it becomes a concern for you in the future, seeing a decent doctor might not be a bad idea.
I am fairly anti-pharmaceutical, but I still see a doctor from time to time to get the "ok" that I'm healthy. There has been a lot of nonsense created by the pharma industry, true, but there is a lot of real medical knowledge hidden somewhere in there.
The way I see it, it is indeed a problem that much of the medical industry functions as a massive funnel for money toward the drug company industry. However, just because a doctor is part of the field of professional practice that perpetuates such things does not implicitly mean that he is also a money-hungry, bribable, and corrupt person.
Not saying you have to change your stance on doctors, but just something to consider. A GOOD doctor can help you stay on track and/or catch an illness before it gets too complicated. No one is perfect, and illnesses can happen even to raw fooders.
my doctor is amazing. love that i'm raw... LOVES that i'm raw! he's a huge supporter for me.
so that's not it... it's just not something i'm concerned about... more curious is all :P
kudos for finding an awesome doctor :)
I have this EXACT same condition and I finally found this thread on google. Aleesha, have you managed to figure out what it is? I have hundreds of these small hard slightly-tender lumps on my calves thighs biceps etc, that I can only feel if I press on the skin while clenching the muscle. They seem to be slightly elongated but I don't think they're veins and they are not visible at all. I am less concerned and more curious
You probably detoxing in a deeper level.
If this is muscle, it seems like scar tissue, maybe you couldn't feel them before but now that more lair of fat are being release, you can feel them more.
Does this seem to be part of the muscle or in the skin area.
If you are detoxing to a deeper level, it could be all the toxin that were trapped in tumor or cyst that are getting release.
Of course, i am just guessing here but i hope you find the answer that you are looking for?
