ive just read this and thought it looked interesting before i got to the result, just goes to show if other people dont see it and you believe it could be something its always safer to send natasha / tt a wee picture, this happened to me recently too nobody could see what i had but i sent pics to the tt and same result as you, go with your gut feeling and it costs nothing for an email. well dug and rediscovered :) ;)
whenever i complained about an ailment growing up my mother used to say "if it's no yer erse it's yer elba" theres compassion for you! ;D ;D
