swollen legs; convinced I'm dying; severe PA
« on: January 22, 2014, 12:47:52 AM »
Been have general anxiety all day due to other health reasons but just decided to try for bed when I noticed my legs (from my knees down to my feet on both sides) seem swollen.

 I'm convinced I'm dying and can't calm down!!!

What causes swollen legs? I'm wondering if its something benign. Ok more like hoping it is. How do I get rid of them? I was yhink ing that I should drink some water and try to flush some of the swelling away.

Back story: yes, I am over weight. PAs for 15 years. Always over HA. Going to the drs tomorrow morning because of blood in my stool (also freaking me out!!) Hate going to the dr. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only hypo who hates going to the dr!

hi rainbo, its very common to have legs that are slightly swollen if you are a little bit overweight...as for not liking going to the drs...i hate going to the drs I'm always afraid they are going to give me worse news...please get things checked out..im sure you are ok though

Thanks shanny, but I'm not a little over weight ... I'm a lot over weight. Try 380 as a 33 female at 5'5". Not good but I freak out at the gym. Trying to work with a CB therapist but I see her for the first time next week.
