I have had a swollen right leg with pitted edema for 18 months. I have discomfort in my right knee and groin which is no doubt my lymph glands.

I have had several tests and no one can tell me the cause.

I also suffer from Crohns disease which is an auto immune type disease and wonder if if is related to that.

My leg blows right up in hot weather or extended periods of time on my feet.

I am only 36 years old and would like to fix this problem as it is quite debilitating.

Hopefully someone can suggest something to help.
