Recently, I got off a long plane flight, and my right leg was much bigger than my left leg. Having had a DVT 15 years ago, I feared a repeat and went straight to the ER. The ultrasound showed no evidence of clots, nor did the blood work they ran. Since everything came back negative for blood clots, they sent me home. My question is what else might be causing this edema in my right leg, which has continued to be a problem? I am 59 years old, female, active, and not overweight (5 4 1/2 and 130 lbs) with no other health issues. Thank you, Toni

I have been suffering with pitting edema in my legs and sometimes in my whole body it s been going on for about five years and no dr can figure out what s wrong, it s not my heart or my kidneys. I m basically healthy except for the edema and sudden weight gain when it all started. Antibiotics make it go away but when I m off the antibiotic for a little while it all comes back.
