I’m hoping that you may be able to put my mind at rest. There are a couple of recurring symptoms that I have and cannot make sense of and I’ve received no explanation to date. Can anyone identify and assure me that I am not going completely mad.
- I call it ‘Balloon Legs’
Leg muscles (calves imparticular) become extremely painful when I first try and stand up. Legs may also feel like they are throbbing. It is difficult and painful to straighten legs. It almost feels as if muscles are filling up with excess blood and ripping apart as a result. The issues subside with mobilization.
- I call it ‘Sloshy Foot’
I get intense pain across the top of my foot which follows the couse of a vein across my bones. It feels as if the vein is going to explode and also that my foot is swollen with blood sloshing around out of control. Toes may also feel numb. It’s a really really horrid sensation. The feelings remain even when I remove footwear and socks.
Am I alone?
