On the front of my legs the bumps are only slightly raised...some larger than others. They feel hard and painful to touch. The doctor thought they were lypomas but the ultrasound showed nothing. I tend to believe my massage therapist when she said they were pieces of fascial tissue that have broken off.

Bubbles on your legs can be excess fluid which would explain weight gain. Make sure your labs are checked for kidney function and possible congestive heart failure. Whenever a doctor says, " I don't know," respect that and then ask 'who should I see about this.'
