Does anyone else have lumps protruding from under their skin? A couple of inches below my clavicle I have a number of lumps on both sides of my chest. Their not very big but they are definitely elevating the skin in those areas. Pretty disturbing! Any thoughts or comments? Thanks y'all, Dan

I have lumps everywhere! Stupid Bart! The area you are describing is one of the areas where my lumps are most concentrated. They are not visible, but subq lumps... of course they might be if I weren't female! Smile

Do you know if you have Bart? Might take a look at the other symptoms of bartonella. I have them in my chest, lower rib cage, and insides of my shins. They are sore when they appear. I'll feel like I have a bruise and then within a day or so there's a new lump.

Are they about the size of a pimple?

I'm an Advocate

I get ones from the size of a pimple to a dime. They do start out very hard and are annoying. I never bruise before they arise though. I dig them out of my arms which I probably should not do.

I have the huge ones running down my left leg from my knee to the ankle. The larger ones seem to enjoying being near a vein but are no longer painful thankfully.

The first one was a huge lump on the back of my neck which I got removed, but never heard what it was. No call "meant" it wasn't cancerous.

I've been getting small lumps on forearms too. Thought they were hives. Maybe it's Bart Sad

Could be any of the coinfections, since I've got them all. I'll just spin my co-infection roulette wheel and pick the Symptom of the Day!

Whoo hoo!

I was getting those for about 2 1/2 months, but all the sudden they cleared.

I'm not sure if mine were bart or not? I do think it is Lyme or Co. related.

I though I read that bart bumps were mostly on the legs?

Mine were on my chest, neck, face, and back.
