pitted endema on shin
« on: May 21, 2014, 04:57:55 PM »
Last night I was watching TV and my foot (ankle bone) was resting on my leg for some time, and when I moved it there was a big dent there. I started pressing my finger on my leg and thumbprints appear and vanish after a bit. I am pretty sure this is edema, but I was wondering if there are other causes for this outside of the super scary stuff.... can being overweight or eating wrong foods cause this? I want to point out that I have to press really hard for the thumbprint to appear. My legs are not swollen or red or painful and this ONLY happens on the shin. I am over 50, but my BP is normal and my heart rate is normal. No shortness of breath. If anyone has had any experiences with this, please share. Thanks.

Have you ever been tested for hypothyroidism?  That can cause that as well.
