I am feeling tightness on the skin my lower legs

Posted , 2 users are following.

For a couple of years now I am experiencing a feeling of tightness of the skin on my lower legs and feet; they sometimes ache. This happens mostly when I am relaxed sitting in my recliner with my feet up. It feels like I'm waring knee high socks. I'm on serveral BP medications for blood pressure. I exercize by walking at least two hours a day with my husband. I do not suffer with leg cramp but I just cannot think what it could be? Has anyone had this problem if so what did you do to help. Thank you.

    Hi pat 81257. I certainly can't diagnose, but if I were you I'd go and describe this to your family doctor. Some women get varicose veins. It doesn't sound like it is something you should ignore. Our bodies try to tell us something is wrong, and it could be anything but should be checked out. Best wishes, harrishill
