Propping up doesn't seem to help much. The moment I lower them the swelling is right back, not that it goes down that much. My left knee and ankle aches. My left foot is killing me and is also quite swollen. Now I know I did nothing to injure either the knee or the foot. Did nothing even to cause this darn swelling.......left leg is worse than right leg. I swear I did no lifting to amount to anything. I sat at every opportunity...even while wrapping dishes and china. They don't seem to be quite as big as my thighs today. I guess that's a good thing. But I can't figure this out. This will NOT keep me from going to Cleveland. I will hobble if necessary. I suppose it could be the kidneys.......if so, I'm not really noticing any other symptoms. My blood pressure is thru the roof, but that's nothing new. Good thing is I'll be seeing a doctor tues. You don't know what I had to do to get an appointment that fast with a new fam doctor. This is the doctor easy child begged me to see. His office gave me the run around. easy child went into work last night and told him the situation. Funny, but I found myself with an appointment. lol So come tuesday I should have all my medications back. (thank God!!) This just seems so darn silly. I swear I've done more walking/standing on a shopping spree with easy child than what I did thru the week. I worked my fanny off, but tried to do it in such a way so as not to cause something like this. by the way 3 extra strength tylenol is just not cutting it.
