Swollen feet and legs

Posted - December 2013 in Your Say

related to HSP?

Are swollen feet and legs a problem with HSP? I have that at the present time. I did break my hip 8 weeks ago, I think my doctor is not sure what is causing it, have been taking fluid tablets in large amounts with not much luck, going tomorrow to have my legs scanned for blood clots and next week a heart test, echocardiogram.

Does anyone else have this problem with HSP, if so what is being done about it?

Would love to hear, thanks.

    Thanks for your reply Gerald, had all the tests done no blood clots & nothing wrong with my heart, but alas I still have swollen ankles & feet. The other drug that could have caused it was an infusion I had after I broke my hip to strengthen my bones & help with a lot of other things related to bones was an Aclasta infusion & that was one of the side effects, so I will now have swollen & sore bones around my ankles for 12 months I am told, just what I needed. 🙁

    Hi, Grant here. I have swollen legs and feet. I was told to cut down on coffee, I was drinking 5 cups a day. Also lift legs up higher than yourself when sitting down. I ride an exercise bike a few times a week when possible. I also have a Revitive Circulation Booster that I use 5 or 6 times a week and it helps to keep the swelling down quite a lot. Sometimes it is not noticeable. it is great I’m drinking a bit more water.

    I have one swollen foot and ankle, they blame me breaking my other ankle for the swelling as weight bearing, I do have a heavy elastic sock for that one foot. But I have been told to do deep breathing holding my breath in between this will draw the fluid up to were it should be !!!
