Legs swelling

From: tamale - 4 years 15 weeks ago

Does anyone here have leg swelling? I have Graves Disease along with weight gain. My legs are now swelling to the point of pain. The only solution given to me by my doctor without a real explanation why the swelling to the wear support hose and move around.

I just want a decent answer. Why all of the sudden I have leg swelling?

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

I get the same thing. Ask you doctor to do a run on your levels or magnesium, and potassium. What meds are you on? Do you research about the meds you are on. The meds may mess with ceratin levels or vitamins and minerals in you body. Synthroid can bind to calcium and other phytonutrients. I would check that out.
