Have had these bumps for about 5 years. They seem to be getting worse and are spreading up my legs. My local doctor says that nothing can be done to help and it's just because I am over 40. I just can't believe that. I am taking blood pressure and statins. Have had bypass and have a pacemaker. Last week had CT scan on legs to determine if I have a periferal circulation problem. Should know results by Wednesday this week.
