I have been having recurring swelling in my hands, feet, legs and arms. Could be lymphedema?


Posted by jace

The swelling can last any time between 1-72 hours. As of this moment I have 5 or so swells. I cant always feel or tell were the swelling is, not sure why. I find them mainly on my fingers, toes, heels, and majority of the time on a joint. Making it a little more restricting to move. I will normally ignore them and move as I would, is that a bad idea? Most the time they get really big sometimes almost doubling in mass. They can become red, and itch if i move or touch it. Just tonight i found information on lymphema, so I still don't know if that's what this is. Can anyone please help me?

Dear Jace,

 From my experience with my daughter's limphedema, most probably it is limphedema.

Better you consult any Vascular surgeon in your area to confirm.
