I'm curious if anyone can give me any information about edema of the legs? For the last several weeks my legs have be swollen and heavy feeling (similar to when I had my first blood clot). I've been trying to control my sodium and have been elevating my legs as much as possible. I elevate them mostly at night and it seems to help but by mid day the swelling is back. I haven't had the pain that I originally had during my first blood clot but my right hip has been extremely painful to move for several weeks (rotating it in an outward position). Does anyone have any suggestions to reduce the swelling? I am going to my rheumy in a few weeks but I want to try to resolve this by then.
