Edeam from abdomen down. Pitted edema in both legs, so severe at night I have trouble walking, does go down over night but still swelled when I wake up. Has been happening for over 3 months. Echo came back normal, and all the lab work, CT scans, ultrasounds have come back normal. I have been a diabetic for 29 years and do have peripheral neuropathy in both legs from the knees down, but that has not gotten any worse before this all started.
I am new to this forum and I just wanted to know if anyone could help me with my most recent medical problem.

My kidneys are fine, my liver is fine, my electrolytes are normal, my EKG is normal, my chest x-ray is clear, I am pre-diabetic with a fasting sugar of 112.6.

Hello, I am a 44yo white male, overweight by 80lbs with a history of GERD and arteriosclerosis. I take an adult aspirin daily along with medications for hypertension, a beta blocker and statins.. I have had two previous EGD's performed over the past six years, where my Dr performed a dilation on my oesophagus due to scarring and food getting stuck when I eat.

See your regular md this could be acid reflux they mimic alot like you are having chest pain numbness burning in shoulder etc. This happened to me I was put on Prilosec OTC med now.

Sleeping on one's back can bring such symptoms on, as the heart is surrounded by lungs, and possible adipose tissue that is saturated with fluids. (Edema) Getting vertical usually brings the beginning of relief from the feeling of asphyxiation, commensurate with how long the heart was in failure. In my case - a course of diuretics (Lasix) brought relief. A Cardiologist will want to determine why the heart is failing.
I'm on synthroid and just recently (3 days ago) switched from Zantac twice a day to Prilosec once a day. The fluid retention has been off and on but most recently it seems to be getting worse. The only thing that helps is to drink a million glasses of water a day and spend my life in the restroom. What could be causing this? Those are the only meds I take and I don't eat much sodium.
Doctor put me on Verapmil which gave me bad edema, now I am on Pindolol. It has helped my HR from climbing as high as 180 during walking now only goes to 130.

One night I began to feel a lump sensation in my throat below my voice box and then a day later I was having hot feelings in my stomach, so my GP prescribed me Prilosec for GERD. Well I was feeling a little off going into the day I had my visit and when my vitals were taken my BP was 156/82 when it is normally 120/78 and my HR was 110 when it's normally in the 70s. Grant it...always get a little anxious going into the office but my vitals have never been that bad.
with good pulse. He then checked my feet for edema, there was none. I have never noticed any foot swelling in the past either. And he said that my heartbeat sounded normal.

My blood work showed a blood sugar level in the lower ranges of normal. I am a 46 year old male 6 feet tall weighing 163 pounds, non smoker.

I had conflicts the last week of the month. I have to take Prilosec or I vomit horribly. I generallyloose weight on Prednisone. Not sure what will happen on this dosage. I had a rib with a mass on it removed last December and have dropped over thirty pounds since without trying. concerning since I am fifty two and not of a age that looses weight effortlessly generally. Through this whole mess I oddly enough met a wonderful man that is supportive of my illness and has become a part of my life.

My neighbor who is an R.N. was over today and noticed my feet and legs which have been quite swollen lately.
My EKG blood work and chest X-Ray were good and with only moderate high bp and no edema the chances of chf are slim. Also how does one cope with anxieties in relation to this ailment?
I can't tell you how many thousands of dollars I spent, only for one doc to tell me it was ideopathic edema!!! Ughhhhhh, that essentially says we don't know what's wrong with you. I gave up on the medical community and experimented myself with different things like exercising more, watching my salt intake, elevating my legs and feet, etc. It did help. And to this day if I don't rest enough it swells up. There are a lot of shoes that I can't wear, but I'm alive!!!
-in turn, increased pulmonary blood pool, pulmonary edema, i start to have little problem breathing and continuous white frothy sputum, sputum is never pink-frothy so i can at least get some relaxation that it hasnt damaged my pulmonary vasculature, YET. continuous production of pulmonary mucous make me sneeze continuously. -pulsating headache. -in this phase, i feel agitated and disoriented/confused.
FT4 at 1/2 the range, FT3 in the upper quarter....but edema was worsening, I was getting random spasming in my feet and an occasional charleyhorse in my calf, and I started gaining weight and having GERD symptoms and abdominal bloating. So my PCP said she didn't know what to do and said I had to go back to endos, and then she retired and closed her office. I am SO lost. Anyway, so I did the 24 hour urine test again but the doctor's office neglected to tell me to throw the first am sample away..
I'm basially freaking out about this because from most of what I've read, this could be a lifelong condition and I'm very upset about this. I'm taking two prilosec a day and it's still not helping with the throat irritation. Has anyone had this problem. Please help. Thanks.

Several months ago I purchased an electric adjustable bed, which has helped in reducing the reflux. However, I still have erratic pain and reflux problems. I am currently on 20mg Prilosec twice a day and still I have some reflux problem. I understand the nature, treatment and complications related to my condition. My wife and I are very concerned. I am asking for the name of a HIGHLY qualified gastroenterologist in the Dallas, Texas area.
