Question Hunter Bumps? stifles? hocks? need some feedback!

So I have a thoroughbred with a 'hunter bump', I bought him with it and it hasnt seemed to bother him since I have had him. So. He has been squareing off his hind toes lately, also he started trying to lay down after I put a saddle on him. I ride him just about everyday, so I am thinking the laying down thing may be something to do with back soreness, but he never seems sore when I cury his and my trainer are thinking his issues may have to do with stifles or hocks,...also ever since I got him he is very tense about picking up hind legs, he picks them up very high and twitches it. But when I bought him he did not square off his toes. The vet checked him over the other day and he thinks it has something to do with the hunter bump, but I am not so sure everything I read about them says that after they heal, its just a blemish and should not bother the horse much.
Please give me any feedback
