swelling in ankle top of foot and swelling going up leg

Posted by Sue R on 10/02/02 at 15:31 (096739)

I have rsd and have had it since 1989 it has now spread to both of my feet,my right foot is worse now, the bottom of my foot is numb at times the top burns and gets real red to the touch and bluish is some areas the foot is so very painful to the touch can't stand water touching it if I stay off my foot the swelling stays down when I am on it any length of time my entire foot swells and so does the ankle the pain is unbelievable my dr now says that he thinks that the swelling in the ankle is vascular but i do know that most people with rsd have swelling,redness and extreme sensitivity so any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks Sue R
