I am a 38 year old female. I was seen in the e.r. 2 months ago. The Dr. ran blood work and did an ultrasound on my legs gave me pain meds and lasix and sent me home. Now, my symptoms are worse than before. I have fluid on my knees that is severe and now there is fluid in my thieghs,knees, and calves.The Dr. never gave me an answer to what is causing this. I am in so much pain I can barely move. My husband helps me up and now I am using a walker.I can not afford a Dr. right now. I have currently lost my insurance.I do not Know if this is serious enough to return to the E.R. Can someone please give me some guidance,Please. Thanks,Tucker8871

  • OK! I want to ask you some questions do you suffer from any difficulty of breathing? or you wake up at night on difficulty of breathing?yes do you suffer from easy fatigability?yes do you suffer puffy eye lids and swollen face? sometimes are you diabetic?no do you suffer from any abdominal distension? not sure what was the result of the ultrasound? and also the result of the medications?The results of the ultrsound was they found no blood clots in my legs.The Dr. said he just wanted to make sure I was not going to die that night. For the meds he only gave me 3 tablets. The pharmacy called the hospital because they said that did not make sence. The 3 tablets helped by day 3 then by day 4 the swelling was back. I had fallen here at home the other day and could not get up the pain was unbearable. Thank God my husband came home. Thank you for asking me these things. I have no family to talk to besides my daughter and I do not want to scare her. Please let me know what you think.Thank again. Tucker8871
