I feel dizzy , falling getting bruises throwing up, nauseous, shaking in hands and feet, and blurred vision: adr did MRI said I had microvascular problems and I've had blood cots in my leg to Xarelto for awhile. Dr said blood clots are not there but my blood is not returning back up to my heart well. He said my blood is pooling in my leg. Should I worry about all this? My dr referred me to a neurologist but they haven't called me. Must not be a very big problem?

I am having some extreme distention in my abdominal area. My

I am having some extreme distention in my abdominal area. My faces swells around the chin and and mandibular bone bilaterally. I become very tired when I am experiencing one of these swells - they come and go but are happening more frequently. I tend to bruise easily but I am on Cymbalta which I know can cause bruising.My thyroid nodule in the isthmus swells during these episodes. My thyroid has sever nodules on it and was biopsies a couple of years ago. All were not tested just the major ones.I am MISERABLE!! When this swelling occurs it is even hard for me to work and I feel a little foggy while they are at their worst. This is becoming a quality of life issue. I am a dentist and being miserable is not the way to practice dentistry.I have cut out gluten, lactose, and most sugars. I try to follow the paleo diet thinking that may help, but the swells come and random and stay about 5 to 7 days seemingly regardless of what I eat.I did have my gallbladder out about 3 years ago.I am 52 years old and post-menopausal.Could all or part of these symptoms be related to an endocrine issue such as the pituitary and or thyroid. All thyroid panels have come back "within" range.By the way, the distention in my abdominal area is hard as a rock. People at my clinic have started asking me if I am pregnant when having a "swell."Sorry so long but I am getting desperate!!Thank you, ***** ***@******.***I

My 75 year old mom has been dealing with an ankle issue. She

My 75 year old mom has been dealing with an ankle issue. She is in good health and has no chronic conditions or weight issues. She doesn't recall hurting her ankle but at the end of June and early July her activity level increased as she was packing up the house as my parents were moving into a new home. The ankle became sore and was a nuisance for 1-2 weeks and then began to hurt and was difficult to walk on, especially when first putting weight on it, then it would improve. She went to her doctor, X ray didn't show anything. And he diagnosed her with gout, gave her the gout meds. She had blood work done and it came back with almost no uric acid so it wasn't gout. They advised her to wear a soft cast for a week to see if it improved. She eventually started to feel a bit better in terms of walking, but the ankle still was swollen and slightly bruised and also very tender to touch. Now its been over a month and today she had a bone scan. Results will be ready Monday. Not sure why they didn't just do an MRI, etc, but the doctor wanted to be more complete I guess. Healthwise she feels good and the ankle is not slowing her down too much. To me this seems like ruptured tendon or soft tissue injury, but its not my specialty. I wanted to get your thoughts. Thanks!
