The last four month my feet has been very swollen ecpesially the left one. I sleep with my feet up in the nights but it does not help. I have been to the doctor and he does not understand why.
My toes are red too. And looking like small sausages from edema. And I have more spasmes than normal in my left foot. I believe my whole body is swollen because all my pants are tight and I have gain some extra kg. And of course, my normal shoes are out of the question. My doctor do not know anything about SCI and he has denied me to see a spesialist because I was in the hospital in the summer. But then everybody had holiday and nobody knew anything. Anyway, the waiting list are long, maybe eight month.
Nothing is wrong with my kidneys except I have had an UTI since June but I do not get antibiotics because I do not have enough fever. I have chills and I am peeing in my pants, it does not help. I have been to the E.R too but there they did not understand a thing so they sent me home again. I have tried those thight socks but they hurt my feet, my skin is easely painful and the socks was a nightmare.
Anybody here has a good advice? The people I know with SCI here, tells me to go to the doctor but since that is useless, I ask here instead and hope you can help. My feets are not painful, I do not have a DVT, but it would have been nice to be able to put shoes on since the fall are here and it is cold outside.
