Help for swollen feet and legs?
My legs and feet began to swell about 6 months ago. In the past week, they've become much more swollen. Lying in bed doesn't help, nor does elevation. My lung doctor can't seem to tell me if he can get them down or not, but the skin is breaking in a few small places and they're beginning to also swell above the knee. I am going out today to buy bigger shoes. It's really uncomfortable and hard to walk on the puffy swollen soles of my feet. I had tests to see if there was a clot, but that isn't the problem. He said it was due to lack of oxygen in my blood, which makes sense, but I just wonder is there no hope, or will they be like this forever?
