Things That Make You Go "hmmmm......"

Recommended Posts

Yea, this one REALLY makes me wonder!

 

On my left knee cap, 10 small, uniform, brown dots showed up. Each one about the size of a pencil eraser. All lined up in three perfect rows. Two rows of three with one row of four down the middle, offset.

 

Looks like this:

Yes, I tried scrubbing it off thinking it was something I kneeled in or on but it doesn't come off and doesn't hurt....just makes me go "Hmmmm...." <_<

 

It will probably disappear before my rheumatologist appt on the 30th you watch :rolleyes:

 

Any thoughts? (besides "Hmmmm"?)

 

Thanks,

B


Take care,

Barefut

This is just a silly reply so please don't take any offence. You haven't been abducted by aliens heave you? I think if that were the case they may well be saying, hmmm! Imagine out of the whole universe of people thay choose someone with a connective tissue disorder! In my case thay might even think I was made of plastic and what would they make of me being fed via a tube --- this one never got rid of her umbilical! I think they might be quite surprised.

 

Seriously though, are they like bruises, could you have banged your knee without realising? It's certainly a strange one, maybe you could take a photograph of them to take along to your rheumatologist or even post them on this site so if anyone else experiences them they can compare. If your rheumatologist gives you a diagnosis on them then it will serve a purpose.

Hope you are otherwise keeping well.

Best wishes

Hmmmm this is perplexing. Barb may be on to something with the aliens. :)

 

But - actually I've had something similar happen to me. It was on my lower leg. It had gone away however by the time I went to the doctor 2 weeks later. It was almost like I had over sprayed myself with self tanner, but only in the arrangement of dots! And I hadn't used self tanner.

 

I would LOVE for you to get to the doctor for them to see it before it goes away and tell us what it is! (although, they probably won't know)


Warm and gentle hugs,

Barbs.... :lol:

 

Well, I didn't want to say anything, but since you brought it up..... :o

 

Yea, I HAVE considered that I may be under alien experimentation.

 

Maybe THEY are the ones CAUSING these mysterious, incurable diseases? ;)

 

I wish I had a decent camera, no digital.

 

Oh my goodness! I paused to moisturize my knee just now. My kids walked over and I showed them and asked if they saw the dots and they said yea.

 

I said, I've been trying to figure out what that is and my 9 year old said, "Probably alien abduction". I KID YOU NOT! :blink:

 

I said, "Why would you say that?" and he said because he saw a picture of a guy with dots like that on his stomach, only bigger, in a Ripley's Believe it or Not book at his school library.

 

Believe it or not. :o

 

I told him to bring me that book.


Take care,

Hi Barefut,

 

I'm not positive, and of course I'm not a doctor and I have no medical training at all, but I think this would qualify as the very first case of Hexagonal Round Dot Scleroderma of the Knee Caused by Alien Abduction. And I can't hardly wait to see the protocol for the clinical trial investigating this phenomenon. :blink:

 

More seriously, but not much, I've never heard of scleroderma appearing in the form of a perfect hexagon of dots on the knee, so we can probably rule out scleroderma as being the cause of it.

 

It could be some sort of weird and hopefully non-alien rash; you'd have to check with your doctor on that, of course. Or, just put yourself on display at the Ripley's museum? Hmmmm....


Warm Hugs,

Hi Barefut, I agree, take pictures. I had crop circles on my chest but when I went to the Dr. they had faded and he just looked at me like I was nuts. My hip also sounds like someone rustling paper when I walk up stairs. I think I should record that for him too. Isn't it frustrating all the weird manifestations these diseases cause?

Hugs, Piper

Of course my alien dots faded away so I chose not to mention them today at my appt.

 

My son showed me the photo in the Believe it or Not Book and this man had dots just like mine only bigger on his stomach and he said they were burns from an alien space craft taking off. I guess he was standing too close ;)

 

You know we really should not make fun because there are people out there who have had very real and very scary, unexplained experiences to which they attribute to alien abduction and experimentation.

 

I am not judging. I am just trying to make light of my dots so I don't get scared! :(

 

Good night all,

Barefut


Take care,

Barefut
