I can't seem to get my condition diagnosed by doctors so I desperately need help!
I am 27, female. currently living in Malaysia.
around 1.5 years ago my weight went up from 59kg to 74kg and I am 175cm (5'9")(bad eating habits, lack of physical activities). I started running on a treadmill machine. did it for a very short while n then stopped cus my ankles started feeling I started getting swollen ankles. it started with one but the both were swollen. I would start my day with normal ankles and by 5-6pm they were swollen and uncomfortable. and walking around and standing would cause severe fatigue in my ankles.
I saw GPs orthopedic and got my liver and kidneys checked and everything was normal.
I was also on medication. I was taking Ro accutane for my acne.
after a while the problem went away on its own. I lost weight through dieting and exercising (Tae bo mainly) but recently the problem started again. it started 2 months ago when I started noticing small red veins under my skin on calves, ankles and tights. some of the veins r blue purplish. so I got so upset knowing that I'm getting spider veins n stuff. the problem didn stop at that . I started getting swollen ankles again. my legs feel heavy all the time. I get this tingling needle like pain all over my calves the moment I wake up and stand up. sometimes the feeling is like a slight burn at some areas of my calves. and my ankles feel uncomfortable all the time. it feels like I have been walking for ages when I haven't even been walking or anything.
2 nights ago while I was working on my computer sitting on a hard chair the problem got so bad my calves and ankles felt so heavy and uncomfortable that I had to get up n walk. I got the feeling in my hip joints also! yesterday I met a GP and had a blood test done. things looked normal. he gave me some B vitamin tablets (b1,b6 and b12) to take for a week and another tablet for inflammation (etoricoxib 90mg) to be take for one week. n asked me to see him after that to see if the symptoms are gone.
one more thing about me is that since I can remember I have been having back problem. I get this pain in my lower back usually one side that goes down all the way to my feet and rarely gets so bad that I cannot walk or stand unless I take a painkiller or muscle relaxant.
I saw someone called 'Felsen' here who had posted sth about "May-Thurner syndrome". if u read this, do u think I have this problem? can anyone please help me find out what is wrong with me.
oh and btw I feel like my spider veins r progressing so fast like each day they get worse.... is it possible?
Oh oh and my diet I believe is kinda poor since I don drink milk. I don take much dairy daily. My meat consumption is low. Some days it’s zero. And for the past 7-8 months I have been very inactive.
Oh and around 3 months ago I used to take 1-2 tablets of pain killer or muscle relaxant every night over a one month period.
I am so worried and don't know what to do...
