A year ago I was diagnosed with lymphoedema in my legs after many years with swelling feet. The diagnosis came because of extreme pain and difficulty walking. I have since been wearing made to measure stockings and toe sleeves each day. I also was having lymph drain massage once a week. Pain went away, a normal standard of living returned and I was enjoying walking the dog again. Then my dermatologist who does the massage felt I should be able to go less often. We cut back to once a fortnight then once a month. However after a month without treatment the excruciating pain returned. I cannot seem to convince her that this is the reason. There were no other triggers. She keeps insisting this must be something else as at the time she couldn't 'feel' any lymph blockage and my feet were not swollen as before. So now 3 months on my feet are swelling again daily and the pain prevents my walking normally. Anyone else had this dilemma or knows what (else) could cause the pain to return? My doctor advised not wearing the stockings for a while which worked for a week. Now I vary between days with stockings and days without. The photo is of my 'morning' feet.
