It has happened before but disappeared before I could get a doctor's appointment. Usually it is flaming red on one leg only.
No medication taken
no previous illness
I am taking herbs from Herbal Magic to lose weight and
crestor for colesterol other than than no medication. Last time this happened was about 5 years ago.
About 1985 it began with a red patch about the size of a 50 cent piece and came every year for a few years. Now that I'm retired, it has happened only the 2 time
The right ankle is more effected
Yes both areas are red (blotchy, tender and slightly swollen
they are warm
no diagnosis as the doctor said he would need to see the problem before he could give a diagnosis and I never could get to him on time. Last time I was on holliday
Sorry for the delay
In the morning when I get out of bed, I can hardly walk for the pain but after only a few minutes that pain stops but it is still painful to the touch
When I rotate my ankle it does not hurt after my initial getting up. By the way, if I sit I have to go through that process again of pain but soon dissipates. By the end of the day it is swollen more than in the morning.
