Swollen ankles causes in men

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen ankles causes in men


Avatar n tn Well, I'm in the middle of testing now but what I can tell you is that you are supposed to sleep less as you age. This is something you cannot ignore so please look into it even if it has nothing to do with the thyroid. One of the symptoms of hypothyroid that I know of is that your digestion slows down, this means you get more constipated and more time passes between bowel movements (which can lead to all sorts of problems by itself).
Avatar n tn I have had the same symptoms as many of the others who have posted - various parts of my face, especially lips and tongue, sometimes eyelids or chin, swell up to painful proportions for no apparent reason. I also sometimes get unexplained and very itchy hives on my body. It usually takes roughly 18 hours for it to disappear entirely, sometimes less if I take enough Prednisolone early enough.
Avatar f tn I'm calling my doctor today because I finished up the medicine she gave me and I'm still very swollen, the sensitivity went away but obviously having a swollen clitoris and inner labia isn't comfortable! I will ask her about that. However, for it's not the hood that really swollen, it's my inner labia. But my clitorus does feel very hard underneath the hood like you mentioned. As if it was eroused and stayed that way. My doesn't feel sore to touch but it doesn't feel normal either.
Avatar m tn It is a jelly-like material that spontaneously accumulates in hypothyroidism. Mucin grabs onto water and causes swelling. Dr. Halleburton found 50 times the normal amount of mucin in the woman’s skin. Her other tissues also contained excess mucin. The doctors coined the term myxedema. Myx is the Greek word for mucin and edema means swelling. Myxedema was adopted as the medical term for hypothyroidism.
Avatar n tn It's a common blood disorder that causes easy bruising (fragile capillaries) due to a defect in the platelets. (platelet count is normal, but clotting ability is not). I am going to ask my Dr to test me for it. Have any of you experienced blood loss episodes, including nosebleeds, heavy periods, excessive bleeding after surgery or anemia? I am very curious. Also, I was just diagosed with a Vitamin D deficiency that I have yet to be treated for (going this week).
Avatar n tn I am having the same exact problem with my right leg. Just like you, I kept thinking it was my cell phone starting to ring (mine vibrates first) but it was my leg. I had to see my oncologist yesterday (bc survivor) and he said it did not sound like a cancer symptom (thank goodness). He thinks I should see a neurologist if it continues. I hope one of the docs answers your question here, so we can get more information.
Avatar n tn I have developed epididymis three times all told since 2003…all without warning, without a direct correlation to anything in particular and all easily cleared up with antibiotics. THIS IS WHAT I KNOW ABOUT CAUSES OF THE INFECTION… Epididymitis is the infection of the gland sitting atop the testicle. It is the gland in charge of sperm production which then moves the sperm into the testicle for storage.
Avatar n tn For the last week or so now I have had a very slight, high-frequency vibrating sensation in my penis (it feels like it is in my urethra, from about the base of the glans to the base of the penis). It feels like varying degrees of the following sensations: - a cellphone vibrating in my pocket - a stream of fluid flowing through the urethra (without the sensation of exiting the glans) It is not usually constant, but is rhythmic, that is, will come and go in intervals...
Avatar n tn This seems to be causing pain/numbness in my ankles/feet/toes. Has anyone ever had these symptoms and did they go away? I am really upset that visiting him was a waste of time and wondering what do I do next?
Avatar n tn oh my gosh, while googling for "heat sensation in lower leg" I found these comments....has anyone been told what causes this? Mine started about a month or so ago and happens periodically. It is SO strange and I haven't even mentioned it to anyone for fear they'd think I was imagining it or something! I was glad to see others describing the exact same sensation. I have my annual physical in about 3 weeks and will mention it, but am also thinking my dr will think I'm a hypochondriac!
Avatar n tn Needless to say, doctors are reluctant to perform surgery in the absence of an accepted indication and patients are not interested in surgery when the benefits are explained in the terms. Has your doctor looked for other possible causes e.g. gastroparesis small intestine pathology? Abdominal pain is often a diagnostic dilemna and a multitude of tests may be needed before a diagnosis is made.
Avatar n tn I wake every morning with horrible pain in lower back (kidney area) that radiates to the front of stomach (rib area). I have had battery of tests and found nothing. I am only able to sleep 5-6 hours before pain wakes me, also unable to take a deep breath until I get out of bed (very painful just to roll over), once I stand and get out of bed the pain almost immediately starts to ease. After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day.

Avatar n tn I don't have any symptoms yet, except for my period being early once in a while. I am 44 years old, and have gone, in 2 weeks, from having 44 year old skin to skin of a 60 year old. Could someone please help? I'm very distressed.

4939681 tn?1361302899 As if it wasn't tough enough to deal with the overwhelming physical conditions and anxiety and depression that Lyme causes, I now am feeling bitter and angry not only by being overlooked and pushed aside by doctors for so long, but so very jealous of "normal" people. I can't watch tv lately without sobbing because I don't feel we'll enough to do all the things that they can do... that i once did!
Avatar n tn Nothing has helped. Now my ankles have swollen so I can't see my ankle bones and my legs feel heavy and swollen and they are still very tender like bruised all over. I have been trying to find a clue online and have come up with maybe the possibility of a thyroid condition. Without health insurance yet, I have limited $ to spend trying to find the right doctor. I am going to try to find an endocrinologist though asap to see if *** could be a thyroid thing.
Avatar n tn Hey, that's me ! The symptoms, I mean. I have that all the time, along with dizzy spells, usually in the morning. The dizzy sensations go away if I get a chance to get outside and go for a bit of a walk- which is relaxing for me as well as, I believe, the fresh air being a lot better for my system than indoor dust and allergens. The head pressure happens if I'm trying to sleep after a long day; it seems the more worn out I am from work, etc., the worse the pressure is.
Avatar m tn The symptoms of heart attack in women are not the same as for men. Listen to what your body is telling you and do not rely on the internet to heal you.
518117 tn?1429279873 not jello like with some obesity. his ankles have gotten thick...they are swollen. and todd months ago asked the nurse at the counseling center about this. she looked at his ankles and said they were not swollen. even then i thought they looked swollen. i though was blaming the depakote. the doctor has put todd on a med to help empty his bladder. on nov. 29 he has to go to the hospital to have his bladder scoped. the doctor is concerned that my daddy had bladder cancer.
Avatar n tn Male Pattern Baldness If you watched any of the royal wedding, you might have noticed that Prince William is balding on the top of his head. This type of balding of the crown of the head in young men may be a sign of an increased risk for heart disease, says Carl E. Orringer, MD . Several large studies have confirmed the link between baldness and heart disease. Compared to men with a full head of hair, men with crown loss have an increased risk of heart disease of about 23 percent.
Avatar f tn The flare was certainly worse than ever with vertigo, edema, shortness of breathe, and high blood pressure thrown in with every joint in my body swollen and painful. Oh, and did I mention the excrutiating headaches..... On the plus side, I'm alive, living in a wonderful country where I have access to health care I can afford and the freedom to speak my mind on forums like this.
Avatar f tn and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
Avatar f tn My finger joints are stiff and in pain, my jaw and head are sore, my entire spine hurts, and all the joints in my feet and ankles are sore or stiff. What could be the problems of these mysterious aches and pains?
1550149 tn?1340004330 Like some other forms of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis occurs much more frequently in women than in men. About two to three times as many women as men have the disease. What Happens in Rheumatoid Arthritis? Rheumatoid arthritis is primarily a disease of the joints. A joint is the point where two or more bones come together.
Avatar f tn I have taken walks but honestly I think it made me worse or at least more tired. Now I have new sores starting in my mouth and my kness and ankles are swollen. And it took me two very pro-active years for me to get diagnosed and I still have doubters occasionally because I am Irish/German/Cherokee. I think it's from the Portugese that lived with the Cherokee. It's more prominent there. Can you tell I've done a lot of research into this?
1201433 tn?1329001237 I have been trying to figure that one out too so I am glad you posted. My ankles and feet have been swollen too and I think that is tied into low HGB. I seem to really swell when my hgb drops under 10 which it is now. I have not drawn that same conclusion about my face, but I have been thinking I have that steroid chipmonk look.
Avatar f tn Non itching rash above the ankles in humid and in dry hot weather, fading away in a few days. It seems like you get this when walking a lot in hot weather. Don't seem to have anything to do with location, contact with something or bites. It could be internal pressure at the ankle or maybe acidic sweat.
