Pitting Edema and discoloration/bruising?! Help!

Pitting Edema and discoloration/bruising?! Help!

My legs, ankles, and feet have been so swollen, discolored/bruised, with lumps in my veins. The right side is way worse than the left but both have swelling. When i press it leaves and indent and my upper right thigh has discomfort. I have a headache, and on and off pins and needles. My calves are HUGE im thin but am finding it hard to put on my leggings. If you have any idea what this could be and if i should go to the hospital please comment. I hate the ER and dont want to go back, thats why im asking. Thank you all.

I would go to the hospital love as any calf swelling is usually treated as a suspected DVT. I only know because same happened to me apart from mine turned out to be a bakers cyst behind my knee but definitely better to be safe than sorry. Let us know how you get on xxx

Its not anything that ill die from, like a blood clot or anything. They have no idea why my legs are swelling up!! My right side is way bigger, same side as my not so great kidney but my gfr was perfect. This is so frustrating!!

I had an echocardiogram that showed moderate to severe dilation and mild depression in my left ventricle. My ejection fraction is 40-45. My anteroseptal wall is mildly hypokinetic and I have trace regurgitation in my mitrial and tricuspid valve. If anyone knows what the hell that means for me let me know!
