I'm seeing and feeling some strange things in and on my right lower shin.
I hear of so many people loosing a leg. What are the first signs in your legs?

Anything unusual should be checked out by your Dr. Don't hesitate to ask the Dr. I had/have leg problems due to another problem, venous stasis, venous reflux, venous insufficiency - depends on the Dr what they call it. My Dad also had it, but the signs where different for the two of us. Seems the signs of problems can vary from person to person with diabetes related problems. Some of my Drs. tried to blame the Diabetes first when it was a different problem.
In your case it could be from Diabetes or one of the many other health issues that can cause problems. The sooner you get an answer from a Dr the less stres you will have wondering what it could be. Also the less damage it can cause, if it is a problem. Thee are many things that can cause problems. The treatment will vary depending on the source of the problem.
