I currently take a range of medicines for asthma, ABPA & blood pressure. I've had issues with swollen legs for quite a while but have just put up with it (& my GP & consultant have both taken a view that as long as it wasn't too bad, getting the other conditions under control was more important). However, over the last few days, my left leg has swollen much more than usual, the foot is very red & I have continual leakage. I'm also in severe pain with it.
I have a GP appointment on Monday, but this couldn't have come at a much worse time as I'm about to go through a 2-week appraisal-type process to see if my teaching contract will be extended, so I can do without hobbling around my classroom!
All the online information tends to say is things like 'treating underlying conditions will solve the oedema'...if only!
Anyway, I wondered if anyone has any tips either for reducing swelling (raising my legs works up to a point but isn't really solving it) or in particular for pain management until I can get to see the doctor?
