I am having great trouble with my GP in diagnosing Lymphoedema. Reading some of the posts it is reassuring that I am not on my own. It started in May this year in my left leg foot and ankle. I was given water tablets to take the swelling away but they had no effect. So then a compression stocking which did not help. Test for heart, DVT and now am waiting for kidney and pelvic scan. Everything apart from referral to the Lymphoedema team. One of the GPs even said he was going to refer me (much to my relief) then changed his mind as he did not think it was Lymphoedema.
All my symptoms point to this horrible condition and so in the meantime I am having to suffer with my leg. It is making me so depressed so I am so glad to have found this site which confirms I am not losing my marbles as you all have the same symptoms.
Just need to convince the medical side before I have another bout of cellulitis.
