The Thursday before the 4th of July, I noticed that it was very difficult to walk. I had some swelling in my foot/ankle and it felt like I was walking around with a ball of paper in my shoe. I thought nothing of it and thought that in time it would go away. It hasn't. Then on the 14th I saw a doctor about it and he said that to him it looked like gout. It's not gout.

It's in my right leg and goes up to the knee; my foot, ankle and calf are swollen. It's only in my one leg and not the other. I'm 45, about 200 pounds. It can't be an injury, I don't remember getting one. It's not painful, no pain at all, just some discomfort when I walk on it, I have no trouble sleeping at night. I don't have a clue as to what it might be or what caused it OR how to get rid of it. I'm taking 400 iu of Vitamin E a day as a blood thinner but that's not helping. Please HELP!!!
