I have been swelling in my legs, feet, and ankles for a year now. I have had several tests done and the doctors tell me that they can't find out what could be wrong. One doctor said my condition could have been viral. The swelling has caused me to gain a lot of weight that I can't get off. I even exercise and diet. I have been on all types of diuretics and I am still having the swelling problem. At first my left leg always was the biggest. But now, my right leg is starting to swell a little bit more. There have been a couple of times when my face was swoll and my knuckles. I'm miserable!!! I am always sore and at times, I can't hardly walk. The fluid is not flushing out of me like it should. It seems like everything I put into my body stays and don't come out. Oh, there have been several occassions when my weight would go up 20+ pounds in a couple of days. PLEASE HELP ME!!!
