Hi everyone, I've been feeling run down all year,tired etc, at first I thought it was winter blues. I was taking much longer to get ready for work, then about February i noticed i was putting on weight. I used to help look after my daughter's horses every weekday afternoon, then maybe 2/3 days then about twice a week. I was struggling doing jobs, getting breathless. About this time my ankles started swelling as soon as I got up, then both legs too. The right leg much worse like a tight band ankle , and edema up to top of calf. Rash appeared in patches , leg is warm and red compared to rest of leg. Very painful if knocked or prodded. DVT ruled out . My suggestion of Cellulitis as I had an itchy rash on right ankle for months previously to swelling, ruled out by GP. Even though the rash part was shiny . Had course of antibiotics as also found to have blood & protein in urine . First tests ,urine,blood , leg in May. Blood tests showed dehydrated kidney function. Had pelvic ultra sound scan .nothing conclusive. Chest X-Ray nothing conclusive. Stomach is bloated . GP once mentioned gallbadder, not going down that route atm. More bladder and kidney atm. Having Cystoscopy procedure later this week.
Does anyone have anything similar or comments that may help ?
I know it's a big ask, I'm just confused.
I rest a lot more, got a footstool to elevate legs. Swelling only goes in bed overnight btw.
