Hi All, For ages I have had problems with swollen, burning and painful feet and legs which have gradually gone worse over time. Now they are really bad I can barely walk. I had been told I had poor circulation of blood in my feet and legs and thick blood and thought this was the cause. Yesterday I suspected I had DVT as my left leg was even more swollen and hard. I had a home visit from the GP and she agreed and I was given a Fragmin injection by the district nurse yesterday. Today the district nurse came again to take some blood for testing to see if it was a DVT. She phoned back later and said that it was negative, which is great news, except it doesn't get me anywhere. I asked what it could be and she said Lymphoedema and so I did my usual looking up and found that one of the causes could be Cellulitis. Then I looked up that and it seemed exactly like my legs and feet. The strange thing is that the man next door and another one next door but one have had it in the last year, but were diagnosed quickly and received antibiotics. So, I am wondering if it could be.
