Hello All, forgive me if I ramble...
I am 27 y/o male. 6'0" 210lbs
I have been having a continual problem with pain/discomfort in my left leg and occasional swelling of my left foot. The sensation in the leg is mild pain and a general discomfort/annoying feeling. These problems have progressed over the last 6 months, and my left foot seems to swell more often. The swelling has gotten worse in the last month, which has caused me to become more concerned.
I went to a local vascular specialist who ordered an arterial dopler (negative) and said that it looks like lymphadema and that its untreatable outside of compression stockings.
I was told by an acquaintance that it could be a rare syndrome known as May-Thurners and could be diagnosed with a venogram. So I went and saw a second vascular surgeon who ordered an abdominal ultrasound (negative) and told me that he didn't see enough evidence to warrant a venogram and to come see him if the swelling gets worse.
I guess my quesion is has anyone had similar symptoms, and if it is lymphodema what kind of doctor should i go see in order to figure out where it came from or what caused it? I kind of feel like im being ignored and possibly not looking in the right direction. Any thoughts or advice is welcomed. Thanks!
