Swelling

Posted by Joopie on 9/26/00 at 09:01 (029169)

Last night when I undressed for bed, I noticed my left leg, up to about the knee, was very swollen and achy. It was quite a bit bigger than my right leg. It is my left foot that I have been having trouble with swelling and tendonitis. Why would my leg now be swelling, too? It also aches pretty bad. Thanks for your help.

When one leg starts swelling up to the knee and the other isn't, it is time to call your doctor. It sometimes implies some kind of vascular problem should be checked out.
