About a year ago I noticed that my right foot. ankle, and lower leg were noticeably swollen. I saw my PCP and she said the only thing she knew to do was order a test to make sure there was not a blood clot causing it. I had some kind of scan done and it came back normal. Since then the swelling comes and goes. I asked my rheumatologist about it and he ordered some kind of test for a liver autoimmune problem that he said can cause swelling. This test also came back normal. When I saw the Physician Assistant that works for him, he checked my joints. I noticed that this ankle was painful while the other one was not. He said that joint inflamation can cause swelling. But I'm not sure this is the problem. I did some research on the internet and "lymphedema" kept popping up. My symptoms seem to match this pretty closely. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, do you think it is Sjogren's related or something unrelated?
