Hi, welcome XXXXXXX and thanks for writing in.

A photograph attached would be of good use for possibilities.
Dark spot on leg may be a mole, which should be round or elevated lesion. If it is irregular in shape then it is matter to concern. In that case you need concern a dermatologist tor examination and opinion.
Pain in whole limb may be due to either radiculopathy or vascular . In lumbar disc prolapse there is significant pain radiating to lower limb. It may be associated with backache and tingling. At age of 55 there is possible chance of lumbar disc disease.
If there is tenderness in calf region with pain along whole limb then possibility of XXXXXXX vein thrombosis should be considered. It is usually associated with swelling of limb.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have further concern please let me know.

Here and there I have gotten patches of goosebumps, but only on the left side of my body. Today it is only on my left forearm . They arise for apx 15-30 secs, then go away. 15-45 mins later I will have a recurrence. I have found some VERY mixed explanations for the cause. As a nursing student, none of them seemed quite accurate. I have had a full blood panel recently and hormone panel recently, all results well within the range of normal. Is there a logical explanation for this? My thought was a pinched nerve in the cervical vertebrae , as I have had mild, ongoing neck issues. So far, this theory has not been given as an explanation.

I have a pins & needles feeling deep into my left armpit that radiates down the inside of my arm to my elbow, several times during the day. Occasionally while this is happening, i will also have burning pain in the same shoulder - rotator cuff area radiating down the outside of the arm to the elbow. When this happens suddenly and is intense it scares me into thinking I may be having a heart attack, but I don't have any other symptoms, no shortness of breath, no heavyness, no sweats, otherwise I am a healthy 51 year old female. I thought it could be a pinched nerve, but would it come on so suddenly, last for about 15 mins, then subside. This first happened 6 months ago and then again 2 weeks ago. I don't have any neck pain when this happens. Can you have a pinched nerve w/o neck pain?
