I have told my story under share your medical story,with no response yet.
If any one knows why due to pneumothorax or oxygen deprivation, my left leg swells, once stable blood pressure is all over(always higher) and recently 1/2 of left hand swelled. Problems that have appeared to correct themselves are that I'm now sweating under left arm pit again, as I always had prior to pneumothorax.
Prior to pneumothorax never had swelling or edema problems and blood pressure was always approx 113/70.
Any ideas out there? I'm pretty freaked out about the whole deal, as i'm getting total run around fromm medical community. Last cardio I saw asked me why I made an appointment with him? I answered my left leg was swollen when made appointment now it remains swollen or misshapen how ever you want to call it. My left hand was only swollen at one joint he said it looked painful. In telling him my once stable blood pressure is all over the place. i said what unless it 200/100 don't worry , he said yes. That was at one of the top 10 hospitals in the nation, located in St.Louis, mo.
So understandabally I'm quite concerned. Would appreciate any input.HELP world peace:eek:
