I am 47 years of age, my height is 5"3 and I weight 131 lbs.
My legs and feet have been swelling lately.
I also for a long time have been dealing with cold legs and feet which the doctor says that there is nothing wrong with that. I have been dealing with pain for a long time in my legs which I have grown amuned to. There is something going on with my legs, I am tired of cold and painful legs.

Please help me figure out what is going on.

  • I have same problems. My hands and feet get cold even when it's hot outside. They call it Raynaud's syndrome. The pain is connected with cfs. I have both. There is alot of information in this forum regarding CFS. You should try to read some of it. Good Luck...mommy cat

  • You should ask for a venous doppler of both legs to check for arterial or venous insufficiency. Also, edema is often associated with CHF, and a simple test checking your BNP (beta natriuretic peptide) level can indicate this if it's abnormally high.
