I have met with Dr Karri today in East Yorkshire he has diagnosed me with lipoedema. I feel like crying after spending so many years trying to lose weight from my cold, lumpy legs. He was amazing and spent an hour discussing the condition its symptoms and treatments. I feel relieved to read others out there are experiencing the difficulties in getting gps to acknowledge that there is something medically wrong with my legs. I'm 5,7 and 154lbs I'm only slightly overweight and excercise regularly yet nothing makes any difference. I am considering going for lipo later this year as Dr Karri has produced great results and I'm hopeful for the first time in years that I could be pain free and not feel deeply self conscious and ashamed of my legs. I am only 40 and never wear skirts my legs are covered in trousers all year round. I'm hoping to go back to my Gp once Dr KArri has written to him.
