My name is Jimmy and I'm 30 yrs old. One night I went to sleep in my chair sitting up. The next morning my ankles and feet were swollen. I figured it would just pass but it's been 2 months and they are still swollen. I am on medication that has a side effect for swelling feet but I have been on the same med and th same dose of med for 2 Yrs. Never had a problem before. I also get liver checks every six months all normal. Blood pressure is also fine. If anybody has any thoughts please let me know it's starting to worry me.

Hi, I am a 44 year old woman who has been very healthy my whole life. However, just 2 years ago I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and am now on Lisnopril. My mother, grand mother, sister and father also have/had HBP. Family History; HBP, Cancer, Heart Attachs, Heart Disease and Type II. Diabetes, Diverticulitus [Sp?] have either been chronic or fatal issues with my family. For the better part of 4 months now I have been experiencing sever swelling in my upper and lower abdomen, ankles, feet and behind my knees. But especially my feet and ankles! To the point if I even wear socks for an hour there is a deep indention and ring almost to the bone. Also, I have a problem with my palms itching and tingling and / or going numb. Now, I have a weird rash in the back of my neck and up into my hairline. ( Nothing new introduced to be an allergic reaction.) So there you have it....I'M A MESS! Huh? All joking aside, I feel wore out all the time now and have become weak and over weight. I just want to feel better and be myself again. Any help, direction or suggestions would be a blessing and thank you in advance for anything you may offer. God Bless, Taryn
