How old are you? And you mentioned that you are wearing compression stockings already - have this helped?

just said results of ultra were negative
there are two types of ultrasound- one is to check for blood clot in the veins (rule out DVT or deep venous thrombosis) and another kind of ultrasound is to check on how well the veins work in draining your legs. The valves of our veins tend to weaken as we get older causing fluid to be retained in the leg. That is why both tests would be important to do in order to help diagnose the cause of the swelling.

veign doc did one md the other
That’s good and both tests were normal. And I assume the heart is good as well since you are healthy and do not take any meds. Sometimes compression stockings may be enough to control the swelling. In some cases a water pill like lasix may be necessary to control the swelling.

Of course this is in addition to a low salt diet, weight loss if you are overweight, regular exercise; try to avoid crossing your legs as well.

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.
