Back in May my feet and ankles swelled to gross proportions. I went to the doctor, he check all my vitals and did tests for my thyriod and electrolytes. He gave me a prescription water pill, and I lost 8lbs of water in 48 hours.
Less than a week later I went to the emergency room with chest pains, and all tests, including a CT scan of my chest showed nothing.
I saw my doctor about this, as I was still having chest pain. And swelling! He asked me if I was stressed and gave me a prescription for Xanax. I have a lazy personality, so I only took the Xanax a couple of days, as I didn't even want to get out of bed to shower!
Since this time my ankles have swollen up even worse than before, I'll take the water pills for a couple of days, look normal, then bam, a couple of weeks later, the swelling is back.
Any ideas what could be wrong with me? I'm really angry to have been treated like I am crazy and given anxiety pills. My ankles aren't suppose to look like this!
And I am not one who likes going to the doctor. Prior to my recent issues I had only been to the doctor twice in the last 15 years. I am 35 years old and female.
