I need help. For years and years I have suffered with painful heavy aching legs, I also bruise like a peach by just the simplest of knocks. Aswel as this, Iv always been baffled why my body is so out of proportion, with my upper body being around a size 10 and my lower body a 14. My GP but my aching legs down to poor circulation and varicose veins. And Iv always put my out of proportion body down to me being "fat" and pear shaped. For YEARS I have been depressed about my body , trying diet after diet and excersise regimes, and although I "loose weight" and get smaller it's generally lost of my face, breast, shoulders etc. I stumbled across lipodema completely by accident , and I wanted to ask your opinion, is this me??? Have I got lipodema!?!? Help!!!!!
