User rating for this question
Hi, I'm a fairly active 32 male. I went to Europe this summer and during the last week of my stay until now I've been having edema in feet occasionally. Along with this I have a tingling(not pins and needles) sensation In The bottom of my feet. It seems as if I shift the weight from one foot to the other, blood rushes to the one I take the weight of of. Also another new symptom is red blotchy hands... I've been diagnosed with fatty liver/enlarged spleen but all blood work ok. Also have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. I have no insurance so I'm need of answers Please help!!

Brief Answer: It is not due to heart failure or cirrhosis. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX I would not be concerned about cirrhosis or heart failure. Occasional pedal edema is not due to cirrhosis or congestive heart failure. Moreover ultrasound of abdomen only revealed fatty liver and not cirrhosis. Cirrhosis has different pictures during USG and radiologist will not miss it. Beside this,cirrhosis has many other complications. Congestive heart failure causes many problems to the patients like respiratory distress, huge pedal swelling which is consistent etc. I don't think this seems to be your case. So,you don't worry. Get well soon. Hope I have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
