My skin feels like it's going to split open.

My legs have been feeling awful lately. Like I'm retaining water. I am super tired too. My legs hurt so bad at night, I can't bend my knees. It feels like my skin is going to split open when I put weight on my legs - like squat or sit on my feet. It's terrible. I am trying to drink more, I know I've slacked off on that. Has anyone else had this issue? I'm on levo - 100mcg/day. I just had labs done, I know my levels are good and my vit D deficiency is under control, but something isn't lining up. I've not ever had this as a side affect of the drug or illness, and it's starting to worry me, just a little.

" Not exactly but similar. My legs and feet swell terribly and it is almost as if I can feel the swelling creeping up my leg when I stand, and the skin feels tighter. I have never gotten my swelling under control. I take lisinopril as a preventative since I am diabetic, and if I forget it the swelling is much worse. "

" Could it be that your kidneys are not pumping out the water? I know nothing really about that but have read some. That must feel terrible. "

" You know, I wonder. I'll start to monitor how often I pee during the day. Today, for whatever reason, I feel better. I don't know why. I didn't drink too much more yesterday, but i did drink more in the afteroon. I also didn't walk 3+ miles either, and ate red meat 2 x yesterday (which I don't eat at all). I went to bed real late and got up 30 min. earlier - I don't get it. I'm going to go back to writing my diet in my journal here again for a week - see if I can figure it out. "
