Red hot swollen feet and ankles headaches no fever
Desperate to find out name or help for this condition, Previously had swelling in face or throat. Doctors puzzled. Seemingly no heart problems currently, had angioplasty 2 years agoRecently had tests for bladder and prostrate, results negative. have Bladder problems and urinate either frequently or not , on diuretics as well as cholesterol and heart pills. This foor problem is worrying because it seems to be causing small ulcers now. Not sore but short of breath , tired and irritable, seems face swelling landed in both my feet ankles and legs but only as far as knees. Help please for mrdication and doctor to see. What about homeopath, Since neither cardiologist or urologist can help.

Hallo Pietie
You may have a problem with the lymph drainage of your legs or venous circulation of the legs. You are welcome to try a registered homeopath as I don't think there is much in the line of "conventional" medication available for this.
