I am 19 and have had swelling in both ankles and feet for years now and it never fully goes away. The problem is more severe on the right side than the left. I have tried seeing doctors before but no one can tell me what is wrong, except to say that something definitely is. What could I have? I already did ultrasounds on my legs that showed no blood clots and suggested that my veins are fine. I also had an echocardiogram that didn t show anything to be wrong with my heart.

Hi My name is Virginia and I m 53yrs.old..For the past five days both my feet, ankles ,,my lower legs have been swelling up so bad that they hurt. I know that I should prop them up during the day but I m having a problem with just setting around. My right foot and ankle have a little more swelling than the left , the swelling does seem to go down at bedtime, not completely..but as I get up in the mornings they will instantly begin to swell. Is this something serious?

For about three months now my left lower leg has been numb and tingling . Its possible that I unknowingly injured it as I am active and rarely know when I receive bruises. I am 58 years of age. 5 3 and weigh 130 lbs. An orthopedic Dr. did and X-ray and a doppler to rule out a clot. Doesn t think my pain or numbness is due to anything about my knee , (although my knee hurts when I put my body weight on that leg). Both test were fine so he sent me to a Neurologist who determined that the nerves in both legs are sick, (his words). Now I am in Physical Therapy for the 6th week. I can feel no difference at all, this week I ve had some swelling in the knee. I feel that my problem is in my knee. I have no back issues whatsoever. The pain in the knee isnt that bad but the numbness is puzzling to me. I am okay with waiting til my knee heals if thats all it is but I just need to know.
