Hi, I have many small bumpy spots on the top of both arms, from the wrist to the elbow. Have no idea why. I am 63, I take protonix and synthroid, otherwise healthy - I think. Anyone have an idea why I would have this? They have been there for several months.

RE: bumps, lumps on both arms.........

I have a small number of bumps under the skin on my arms and one on my stomach - can't see 'em, but can feel 'em. I was concerned, so I asked the doctor. She said they are lipomas (fatty benign cysts) and not to worry about them. Ask your doctor what he/she thinks they are.

RE: bumps, lumps on both arms.........P.S.

It's interesting, and I don't know the implications, but I also take Protonix.
