What tests would I need to have it checked out? So far, my heart and lungs are normal. On paper, I'm in perfect health....all of my bloodwork --except for the Lyme tests- are normal. Normal EKG, normal abdominal ultrasound (normal kidneys, gallbladder, pancreas, liver, arteries, etc), normal blood pressure...normal, normal, normal hahaha
I don't use any added salt and I was diagnosed as hypoglycemic/pre-diabetic several years ago. Since then, with the exception of the last few months where I just craved sugar and sweets, I was very good at eliminating sugar. My fasting glucose level done a few months ago was...wait for it....normal. :)
The swelling almost always occurs at the end of the night after I work a restaurant shift, but I can't figure out why it happens during the day occasionally. Although, now that I think about it, two years ago (after bite but before diagnosis), I was doing the P90X3 home workout and my legs would swell horribly then too. I actually stopped the program because I kept gaining inches and weight. hmmm
I'll have to pay more attention to weather, etc. and see if there's some pattern to it.
Tick bite in 2011, possibly earlier.
