Hello. My wife has...

Hello. My wife has Parkinson's and tales Kardopal. She's been wearing compression socks but her legs and feet are swollen badly. Is this to be expected? Thanks.

The swelling goes down a little after removing the socks at night

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Thank you for the information. How long has she been on that particular medication and also, is she having any shortness of breath or any other symptoms besides the leg swelling?

She does ha e shortness of breath.
Health Professional: Dr. Mo, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago
With the shortness of breath and leg swelling we would worry about kidney or heart issues which can cause fluid retention. It might be that some of the same fluid that’s in the legs is also in the lungs.

That’s why it would be good to have her seen and either her medication adjusted or changed. It’s not necessarily anything dangerous but should be investigated.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
