I have primary lymphodema. started in right foot after I had terrible sunburn and blisters, but went away most of the time. both legs swelled when I was pregnant at 34 but then went down again after I gave birth. 2 years later I put on a huge amount of weight. At 40 the legs really went, when I was pregnant again, and have stayed up since then. I have constant sinusitis and last two years I have developed HS. Weight gain is rapid - loss is horrifically slow. Any time I do something to my diet/lifestyle by body seems to go into 'shock' and put on weight rapidly (ie I stopped smoking, all my digestive system ground to a halt and menstrual cycle stopped for 9 months, and put on 3 stone in 12 weeks) is this just my body being tricky, or could it be lymphodema. I get acid reflux badly too
