For 8 wks now, I have had a swollen foot on my right side. It started with pain and the pain moved up my leg. The first MD that I saw sent me to the ER for a sonogram to rule out DVT. I was cleared of that. Then the next MD did some blood work to rule out infection and a rheumatoid factor. I am only 32 years old. After this the Md decided that I must have Parvo. I returned to him 7 weeks later and my leg and foot cont'd to swell. He then decided it could not be Parvo and that I needed a transvaginal ultrasound to see if there might be a cyst causing blockage. He let me know that I have cyst's on my ovaries and that they were not large enough to cause a blockage on the lymphatics and so I must have rheumatoid arthritis. The only problem that I have with this diagnosis is that I have no joint pain. I have lots of pain in my right ovary and even swelling now in my right arm and neck. I have been controlling the swelling with cherry concentrate and calcium/mag but it will not go away completely. Can somebody help me with suggestions of what may be causing the swelling?
