Swelling in right leg

I posted back in June that a swelling on the inside of my right leg had appeared - behind my ankle, and on inside of my foot and on lower calf. Got it checked out and they were happy it's not a blood clot and that it looked like an injury. It seemed to be going down but periodically keeps coming up again and the swelling is again like it was in June again and uncomfortable but not painful. It is non-pitting I think and there is no discolouration.

Could this be hypothyroid myxoedema on one leg only?

Google "pretibial myxoedema" to see whether your swelling is similar.
