So, I dunno where to begin...it's been ages this has been going on. I've asked the Dr about it and he's done nothing. He's only asked a couple of questions and gave me anti inflamitory pills and said keep your feet elevated. I emailed again to tell him that they aren't helping weeks later & he's sending me to a physical therapist. No test has been done...or anything.
I am NOT pregnant.
I am watching my salt in take and hardly ever add it to my foods.
I DO drink water 8+ glasses a day.
I DO elevate them as often as possible.
I have NOT injured them recently (last time was over 14 years ago)
I do NOT have high blood pressure that I know of
I do walk I exercise my legs I massage them...I sit down as well because I know pro longed standing makes it worse.
They do NOT always go down over night. Sometimes I wake up and they are already starting to swell.
I have worn all kinds of shoes & at this point can only really wear flats or flip flops.
I AM currently taking Zocor for high cholesterol (could that be it?)
I also take Lodine for the swelling on occasion although it rarely helps.
I have also taken Lorazepam but havent had to take it in about 3 months.
It's mostly in my left foot/ankle it's the worse of the two. The right will swell slightly. The left looks horrible sometimes so bad I can't bend my toes and I have lines/cracks in them.
I do not have rash, fevers, or anything like that. Some times it throbs and sometimes it tingles...but for the most part it just feels like my skin is about to burst.
Anybody have any ideas?
Recognize the risks associated with Crohn’s disease.
Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?
