Swelling in legs, ankles and feet

I am a 43 year old female with PHT (Pulmonary Hypertension) and leaking valve in my heart.  Recently I started swelling in my feet, ankles and legs.  After going to my PCP, he placed me on Lasix with a follow-up appointment in one month.  He said he would decide at that point if the meds did not help whether he would send me to a Kidney Specialist or a Pulmonary Specialist.  Given the fact that I am fatigued, have chest pain, nausea and light headedness, I am think the more appropriate line of attack would be a heart specialist (maybe a heart cath.).  By the way, the swelling does not get better with rest nor are the lasix meds helping.  Thoughts?

Hi there,
I'm sorry to hear what you are going through.
I'm 33 years old, minor systolic murmur since forever, otherwise in good health, beside ... major swelled ankles after travelling by air (water retention and no, I'm not pregnant) I do ware only comfy socks so that is not the cause. Whilst in holiday in Spain, after 3 days since arrival, I tried to buy some tablets that I used before (Very active diuretic, greatly increases renal elimination of salt, is effective in terms of reduced glomerular filtration, since the diuretic effect after 20-60 minutes of oral administration and lasts 4-6 hours, reduce high blood pressure and enhances antihypertensive medication) and they've said they can't sell them without a prescription, but they've recommended a natural product (concentrate vials) that gave me brilliant results; you can see them here - they are not medication, just a herbal adjuvant.

Print the info and ask your GP if it's suitable for you.
Best regards
