I normally post over in the Gerd, allergies, and thyroid forums, but I've recently had a conversation with my thyroid doctor that brought up this question in my mind afterwards.
For over a year I've suffered from leg edema. I've always thought it was due to my thyroid issues.
When I mentioned this to my new endocrinologist he thought it was due to circultory and pulmo problems, because it was non-pitting edema.
Four years ago I had a doppler done on my heart because I was coughing due to gerd and they first thought it was my heart causing it. All they found was a slight enlargement of the left side of my heart. Last December I had a EKG for surgery on my GERD and they said it was normal.
I do have asthma and sleep apnea which are being treated and undercontrol.
My question is:
Do any of you have non-pitting edema of the legs? Is this a heart problem looming in the future for me?
Problems too numerous to name. :)
