    @kward4666 i have this. currently its in the top of both my legs the rest went down having my feet up 24/7 while in hospital. but the tops wont go down. 

    i was diagnosed last year and put on a list to seen but the wait is a good year. 

    hope ur legs/feet r not too bad. 

    Try to be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.

    I suffer with it as well as may Turner syndrome in my left leg. The pain is excruciating some days I can barely walk and my leg swells so much I feel like the skin might burst. Some days it gets so bad I have to drag myself to the toilet using the wall as support.

    i am paraplegic so dont get the pain, but i get severe swelling, I have been advised to rest with the legs prone as much as possible and moisturise the  a few times a day, also have things like compression or bandaging been mentioned to assist, not sure if paracetamol or similar would help with the pain at all
