Puffy leg

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all,

I am now 15 weeks on. Everything, relatively "fine".

Except I now have started my regular "life"

Excersises on the bed before getting up, then on my legs all day apart from dinner, coffee breaks. My knee is coping apart from stiffness at times and some aches and pains.

But I'm outside at work wearing ankle boots or loose socks in wellingtons and by the end of the day my leg has a swelling that stops just before my ankle looking rather strange as if Iv had a tight band around it.

Any ideas, is this normal. Am I doing too much.

But I have to work !!!

Oh dear, just needed a moan, resting my legs, got them up, feeling sorry for myself ,

All comments gratefully received.

    hi susan im wondering what you work at ?  wellington boots  would have no support to your foot and they are very tiring so id say that could be the problem

    Hi Linda & Andrea

    sorry it's a late reply, but I think you had it right,   This week I have tried to work out causes.

    i have cut the tops off my socks until I can get to the shops for some of those sport socks.

    i have a small holding, and then go on to work, garden centre, and also do outdoor sales in antique collectables.    Not to forget family and grandchildren.

    so life is socks and boots !!

    i am being very careful to try and make sure I don't have any ridges as much as possible and drinking water as any pressure seems to leave an indentation on my leg.

    thanks sue x
