Re: Does this sound like lymphedema?
I'm so happy I found this posting after such a long time of unanswered questions.
I too an experiencing unknown swelling, however in my right foot, for approximately 6 weeks now with no sign of relief or answers. I've seen several doctors, received an X-ray, Doppler scan, wore a walking boot for 4 weeks and NADA! Nothing has changed, nothing has improved and it has begun to worry me greatly. I recently got my blood tested but will be receiving the results in 10 days. They are checking for a number of things, mostly hypothyroidism, anemia, cholesterol...etc.
No form of treatment has been helping the situation, such as ice, compression. elevation...etc. and I feel as though I am at my breaking point. I am 22 years old, in relatively good health and my blood pressure is optimal.
Have you received any answers thus far? Any support from other doctors. Any thing you can possibly offer to help put my mind at ease will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, and good luck!
