Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
It will cost me more money to get the Obama Health Care because of the money I make. I will probably find a doctor I can pay cash to for service.
I had a health screening at my school in May of this year. I had another here in AZ in Aug. My blood pressure is normal. My May results came back with nurse consultation. She told me thyroid anomoly was not high enough to be concerned an suggested I stop my medication. I did have a few numbers on the blood work up that were a little high but nothing troubling.
12 years ago I had an MRI on my knees and learned I was born with a condition called bipaletal something where my knee caps didn't fuse solidly and at that time was told I had stage 4 cartilage deterioration in my left knee and stage 3 in the right. I just figured things have finally caught up with me and that is what has led to this long time edema as you call it. I do some cardio every week and have been lifting weights for the last 2 and a half months.
This additional info may help you revise your thoughts.
I do have swelling on the left knee cap but not in my legs. The swelling is in my feet and ankles. I just want to know if there is long term damage being done if I wait a few months more before seeing a doctor about the swelling. Also I gained about 14 lbs. in the last two weeks. This is totally out of character with my history. But again I have had just slight increase in my May blood pressure check and not the one in Aug of this year. So I am wondering where your concern for my heart efficiency comes from?
