Thank you so much for this information. I have severe lymphoedema in both legs & abdomen , which came on gradually in my 40's, a year after being started on a calcium channel blocker for SVT. It started in one leg initially & gradually got worse & worse despite compression etc. Taking this information to my GP we have now removed the channel blockers for alternative treatment & my leg & abdomen swelling is already less. I don't expect a cure but any improvement is wonderful. I'm truelly grateful for this information & want to thank you as with minimal care for primary lymphoedema in Ireland , help like this makes such a difference to a person's quality of life. Thank you so much.Meg
