  • Hi Angela

    I sorry to read of your problems with swelling, it is one of the most awkward things to identify. As you say you find yourself doing bloods and test to eliminate things. I too have been down this path and now I am care in the community this makes my GP laugh.

    So sorry I have no ready solutions, but I think the more you cancel out the better! :D

    Take care xgins

  • Hi bourne

    I am so sorry to read that you are suffering in this way, and I genuinely hope that your GP can find the answers that you desire and deserve. Unfortunately it could be as a result of so many differing issues that it really is impossible to say what it may be?

    My knees swell and go a pinky / red colour, but this is due to arthritis, and also, my hip gives me terrible pain but this is due to sciatic nerve damage, and when it hurts, it can go all the way down to my right foot!

    I genuinely hope that you can get a definitive diagnosis and so be able to start some kind of treatments for the problems.

    All my hopes and dreams for you

  • Thanks

  • You should have an MRI to rule out other things. I have Fibro, along with many other health issues. Hope this helps sweetheart!!! xxxx Mitzi

  • Hope you don't mind me asking do we get more health issues because we have fibro thanks for your reply.

  • Yes sweetheart, many!!! If I can answer anymore questions feel free to ask, I feel this is about the only thing that makes me feel useful these days!!! xxxx Mitzi

  • Hi bourne

    I would have to say that anybody with an existing condition (for us Fibro) is more likely to contract other illnesses as a result of being ill in the first place, as being ill makes you more susceptible to other conditions.

    All my hopes and dreams for you
