After traveling from Kansas City to Colorado Springs and surrounding areas over a period of 5 days, on Monday morning(two days after we returned home) a migraine hit me and left me not so good and on Tuesday I went to my chiropractor. Hips were quite misaligned and most things were out. After the visit, other than fatigue
, my migraine and related symptoms got better. Yesterday (Wednesday) around noon I noticed my left ankle is swollen, no bruising. My body does feel overall stiff and tight and I feel some muscle spasm like sensations in my left leg behind my knee and once in awhile in my upper leg close to the buttocks.
Background on health: I am overweight, have PCOS, hypothyroidism
, Hypertension (Lisinopril), sleep apnea, some chronic low back issues and I generally sit at a computer all day. On the trip we tried to stretch and walk after a couple of hours of driving, I made sure to flex and stretch in the car as often as I thought about it also.
These things did happen on the trip: I did step down wrong and misaligned my hips but felt no pain in the ankle or even the hips much at the time although immediately had numbness and tingly sensation in my RIGHT thigh all the way to my knee. Still have that but it is a bit better since seeing my chiropractor.
What can I do to reduce the edema and what other things should I be concerned about or look for and at what point should I seek medical care?
