I've been experiencing left arm numbness, very distinct sensation starting at the underside of the arm, just below the shoulder, for about three months. Two days ago, my left foot and ankle swelled, without trauma or any sign of a sting/bite, to the point of pitting (according to the nurses I work with). No pain, just discomfort/tingling from the swelling. Kaiser MD was concerned, sending for DVT (D-dimer), which was negative. No previous history of swelling. 4 yr hx of htn (atenolol, lisinopril, maxide), angiogram (-) for blockage (1 yr ago), currently + for low potassium. S/p cholecystectomy (3 mos ago). Family hx+ for cva, lAny thoughts? Kaiser MD baffled as to etiology of swelling in single lower extremity. Don't want any surprises; I have four young children at home. I've researched my symptoms, but found no correlation. Concerned, and open-minded.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
