Customer Question

Happy pitting edema on shins and ankles. Doc put me on hctz. After a week I started getting super bad leg cramps - like seizing up. It's taken days to get back to normal. I couldn't even lift up my leg, the muscle so messed up. That being said the doctor doesn't know why I'm having edema and doesn't seem worrried. They did bliss work for clots and heart failure coming back ok. Did a x-ray of heart and lungs and that looked ok. I've also felt some light tingling/numbness in my hands
JA: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?
Customer: No history. Havnt been feeling great. All labs show normal
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Except HLA B27 positive. Saw a doc for that and they did a hip x-ray and saw nothing. Always exausted.
