I have gained 40 lbs. in the last 1 1/2 yrs. (mostly around my abdomen) and I haven't changed my eating habits. In August of 2009 I had extreme pitting edema in my lower legs and now I have developed a 5"x5" red mark(looks like sunburn) on the right side of my abdomen. My face and upper chest are also pink. Does this sound familiar to anyone. Please help.
