I thought maybe I was on my feet too much, so I took it easy for a while. I was seeing my neurologist for my back pain and showed her my ankles. She called my pcp and told him to see me right this minute. That scared me. I went there he thought it wad too much salt and fluid retention. Well I have low blood pressure so I can't take water pills. So he told me to watch my salt intake and cut back on my fluids. (I do drink A LOT of water). So I changed my diet drank less water, stayed off my feet as much as possible. I have a desk job, I just dont sit much when I home. It seemed to help some for about 6 months. Then the swelling came back with a vengeance. Now this remember this is both ankles and feet. I look like I have no circulation to them. I have had blood test, changed meds, changed diwt even more. But, now to make it worse the bottom of my feet hurt so bad I can barely walk. When I first get up in the morning is the worst. I have fell twice getting out of bed cause of the pain of standing. It hurts no matter what do. If I stand more than 5 minutes it starts burning. I have done so much research. There are so many things it could be. Now my pcp has me going to a Rheumatologist. I am wondering if that is the right specialist for me? Has anyone had anything similar? Any help would be great and appreciated. I will note I do have RSD in my arms and Fibromyalgia. So I do take enough pain meds I shouldn't feel this much pain from anything.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
