I was diagnosed with lymphedema last summer. I have swelling in the leg, especially in the ankle and calf area and hardening of the tissue around the calf. I had several tests done to see if the veins were blocked and a MRI. The doctor told me that there is no cure and to wear compression stockings to help control the swelling. I've been wearing the stockings but I don't see any difference and sometimes I have to take them off because it feels like my circulation is being cut off around the ankle area. Now I'm experiencing burning and heaviness of the leg as well as burning in my left wrist. I elevate my legs several times a day but that doesn't seem to be helping that much with the pain or swelling. Has anyone experienced any of these symptoms and found a way to manage the swelling?
