Just exploring every avenue as my doctors don't seem to be able to find the cause.Has anyone ever had swollen feet/ ankles/ lower legs attributed to liothyronine? My PCP was the one that said it was diabetic neuropathy and prescribed gabapentin which I am now off of-thank God.
I believe it's lymphedema but can't figure out the cause. I've been to the lymphedema clinic and they say it isn't but, just in case, they want me to come to therapy(lots of out of pocket copays) and sell me expensive stockings. I'm not impressed with any of these recommendations. My gut instinct tells me to keep doing my own investigation.
No one seems really interested in getting to the root cause so I guess it's up to me. I feel what's been offered is hit or miss.
I've started taking Serrapeptase and tomorrow I'm going to the store and stock up onfoods that help get rid of mucus and help break down mucin stored in the body. And start my daily apple cider vinegar again.
Sometime ago another doctor said cellulitis and prescribed Clindamycin. I took 3 courses over time and I'm not taking any more.
I also joined the lymphedema forum here but most of the advice is mainstream. I really have no faith in mainstream medicine over this. And I'm not going to spend time,money or energy being a guinea pig.
As Gilda Radnor use to say on Saturday Night Live. "It's always something." I am finding many good alternative youtube videos which make sense.
I think it's an illness that not much is really known about because no one seems really
interested. Just have a "You'll have to live with it" response. I'm going to try to find my own alternative way.
