I decided to just do a journal about this because I seem to not ask my questions right in the forum and usually they get bypassed. I know that I have asked others on here if they have swelling in their legs from possibly low Vit D or is this just a side effect of hypothyroidism or what. I am really starting to get concerned about it. Now I am starting to feel like I am swelling all over sometimes. Even the other night I had this strange sensation like my brain was swelling. I checked my blood pressure and it was elevated for me 148/100. I have been three times to my GP and showed them my legs. I have pitted edema in them. I dont get any answers. Tonight I became really scared , I was lying on my bed and My hip started hurting and I looked down and the top of my foot had this large black and blue bruising all on it. In about 10 mins it completely went away. I dont know what is going on with my circulation. I recently about a month ago had all kinds of blood test done by my Endo. She checked everything in my blood because I complained to her how my bones and joints hurt and about the swelling. She said she was gonna make sure there wasnt some sort of imflammation going on. Only thing she said was low Vit D and that I was slightly hyper. Lowered my levo. If anyone reads this and has the slightest clue as to what could be up with my circulation and bone and joint pain please let me know. It seems to be getting worse but I cant seem to get the docs to care. Maybe I need a Rheumatologist? Anyway,, just another thing in the life of a chronic thyroid person.
