Hi MlTerry

Super welcome to our family here :!:

Believe me, that pain you speak of is very common. One reason for it around those joints is the strain lymphedema puts on them. First, you have the extra weight from all the fluids, and secondly if one leg is larger then the other, the joints are trying to compensate for that weight difference in supporting you.

What all are you doing for it? have you had CDT/MLD and wear compression garments or bandages?

ok today I woke up with tremdous pain all over my legs both right and left from the feet up to the groin area. I can't barely walk, sometimes I think its the weather when it changes, up here in Alberta we are due for snow and I dislike winter totally. so much for doing anything today, I took my Lyrica and tylenol 3 to help the pain, and a soothing bath in epson salt. I hope this helps me, the pain is so sevre that I could cry. :cry:
