Dr chip as we touring and walking I get out breath and or short of breath is it because of weight ? My one victory for today at least is that I did go up and down 36 floor elevator with no fear .and went into a tunnel

Good for you

But you're just a bit out of shape

Dr chip help me out pls .I am still in Canada and everything is going well but when we walk I get so out of breath it's so hard and my legs and feet burn
Customer reply replied 9 days ago
Dr chip r u online

How much walking are you doing?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 9 days ago
We can do either half hour to an hour the rest r tours and I am scared because in such little time my legs hurt I think it's weight and I am so out of breath of course I think o god what of it's heart. Then in this touristy city I see people heavier then me walking smiling and think why they not suffering and I do

I'm simply not going to discuss your heart again--you've got to let go of that fear

If you're able to walk for an hour you're fine

Customer reply replied 9 days ago
But that's the problem I walk I stop ,I walk I stop I take deep breaths ,from heat my ankes and fingers get a bit swollen ,and legs also hurt what u think main issue is

The main issue is you're just out of shape

Dr chip , yesterday when I was taking a shower I noticed the side of my feet riddish and a bit swollen both of then st same place it's where u walk and step on ur foot .so it got me so so scared,then I was short of breath and today as we woke up to hit the road I still feel sob and have fear of pe as we need to drive for 7 hours. I can't get rid of this damn fear
Customer reply replied 7 days ago
I don't know if this picture will tell u anything ,but I am in a car quietly freaking out .

Just some edema--fluid buildup--in the foot and not a DVT

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 days ago
Ok so why do I have this build up ,and what is the difference between dvt and edema .and what do I do. I am so scared .does it mean my heart or lungs not functioning do I need er

Oh, stop--you don't need the ER and it has nothing to do with either your heart or your lungs

A DVT causes the entire leg to swell

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 days ago
why do I have edema .remember I told u before I feel like my fingers r swollen I do keep pressing on leg I dont think there is any marks left .my legs just. Hurt when I walk

Just water weight gain--and you might have incompetent valves in you leg veins that allows the blood to pool in your feet

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 days ago
Ok sorry to be so annoying but what does it mean incompetent ? And how dangerous is it ? And what do I do

Not dangerous at all--if the valves don't close completely it just allows blood to pool in the feet when you're standing

Thigh high elastic compression stockings can help

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 days ago
Well I have them ,but I didn't take them with me ,u told me it's ok as it's not too far of a drive .but do I wear them at all times ? And do I need doppker
Customer reply replied 7 days ago
also if I have vein problem can it lead to dvt or is it different

They aren't needed to prevent DVT but they can help with the swelling

You don't have a DVT and you don't need a Doppler

And this is entirely different and isn't a risk factor for a DVT

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 days ago
Ok but the pain I feel with the walking could it be due to weight or swelling or both. And also when I lose weight do u think swelling can go down

The pain is just muscle aches from being out of shape

The swelling might improve if you lose weight

Customer reply replied 7 days ago
Dr chip I am so so sorry if I am bugging u .I want to ask again as we on a road I still feel sob ,and little nausea and this edema .I just want some reassurance that I will live and not have pe,and what I can do to get fluid out

You will live, this isn't a DVT, you don't have a PE and you don't need to get fluid out

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 days ago
The reason I say to get fkuod out is because o feel puffy

There's no real way to do that other that with a diuretic--a water pill

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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!!
