When I was younger I was on birth control and ended up having a nasty reaction that involved swelling in my lower legs, as well as bruises as wide as my hand. It took like 8 docs before one finally figured it out, but now I have forgotten his diagnosis. What is this called? He called it something... he was a dermatoligist (sp?) so its probably a skin term :-/

thanks!
