Swollen legs and feet

PROFESSIONAL ADVICE IS HIGHLY APPRECIATED... I realize that being seated at my desk for 3-4 hours isn t good but at my age is this normal? 35 and otherwise healthy. Not on any medications and my diet is very sodium restrictive and high in fiber. I admit that I don t drink much water perhaps 3 glasses of fluid a day. Could that be it? or is renal insufficiency possible at this age? I don t drink alcohol - perhaps a glass of wine or two bi-monthly. I do smoke about 1/2 pack of cigarettes a day... could that be causing vascular deterioration at this age? I have smoked since I was 20 so my pack history is 7.5 years. I ve started to do ankle circles but so far no real notable change... HELP? Any professional advice is appreciated....

The best possible advise at the moment I can recommend is a duplex ultrasound of your lower limbs. However taking professional help is mandatory.

Swollen, painful feet and legs. Red spots. Have Hodgkins Lymphoma , Lyme disease and Breast cancer . Just finished chemo. Please help! I have hodgkins lymphoma, Breast cancer and Lyme disease. I have swollen feet and ankles, and red spots all over legs. Went to er, ruled out dvt or clot. What s going on? These red spots have come and gone for about 3 years now. I just finished chemo for the hodgkins. In remmisson now. Swelling just started about one week ago. So bad that you can t even see the ankle, calves are swollen as well, very tight to touch. Feet almost look bruised. Hurts badly on inner ankle. Please help. I m mostly in bed, when I do walk around, within ten to twenty minutes the swelling and pain are so bad, I must sit and put my feet up. Also, having some shortness of breath, and a lot of joint pain . Especially in hands and feet. I figure it s the Lyme, but maybe something else is going on? Also, little red lines are popping up on my feet? Jen
