Hello! My husband has not been able to get a diagnosis. Any doctor that he has gone to (usually emergency because it comes on quickly and is extreme when it happens) has treated him terribly and dismissed him as a wuss.
His foot swells greatly and he experiences shooting sharp pains, sometimes they extend up his leg.
This doesn't happen often, but it has happened a number of times over the past 15 or so years. We first thought he had a spider bite, but it even happens in the winter. Besides, it is not likely that the same thing would happen repeatedly.
Any suggestions? Thanks! I am really worried about something circulatory or renal, etc., and I am afraid for him that he might lose his foot some day,
