Do any of you have circulation problems in your legs and feet? I think mine are swelling slightly. It's not visible but they feel swollen. I wear support stockings and by the afternoon/evening they feel so tight. I know it's normal for peoples legs and feet to be a bit heavier later in the day. That's whey they say to try on shoes in the late day so you buy them big enough to be comfortable all day long. I had the opportunity to go to the King Tut exhibit yesterday and ended up standing for a LONG time. My legs still hurt today. They hurt all the way from my toes to my hips. I know leg pain is common with lupus but is this type of problem also common? My support hose are prescription and they are knee highs that are suppossed to push the blood up from the feet and past the knee. They've always helped in the past years but now by the end of the day they begin to "roll" down. That's another reason I believe my legs are swelling. Achey legs sure aren't fun! Any thoughts?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
