I am 62 yrs. old and have had problems with my feet for years. I have had blood test, MRI's, my heart and liver checked you name it. The doctors said everything is fine. My job requires me to stand all day and I just can't take it anymore. The swelling is so bad this week that my feet feel like they are on fire, I can't walk or stand, and they look like ballons. Any thoughts?

  • I have the same issue. Ankle swelling in both legs. The docs say all is well with my heart, kidneys, etc. I have had a abdominal sonogram, ct angio, nuclear stress test, 2 D echo of my heart, liver scan, pelvic sonogram and more. The test have cost me over 8K and still know diagnosis. I also have a dry cough. This all has gone on for over 65 days. Help.
