My two year old keeps waking up screaming saying something is biting her leg and foot between 4and 6 am but nothing is there.

Look closer: Strip the bed and turn over the mattress and make sure there are no insects or bed bugs or spiders that may come and go before you see them. Does she have a bite on her foot? Anything that itches? Also consider bringing her to your bed at 345 for a night...And if it still happens then see may be dreaming it... ...Read more

I have a lot of pain behind my left wrist.  Left leg swollen below my knee.  Toes and heels numb shooting pains in feet low iron in blood test?

You have a : Few issues here. You need to be careful the swelling below the knee is not in the calf region as a clot is a serious problem. The wrist pain i would see an orthopedist for who can comment on your other issues as well. Not sure if that. Swelling is impinging a nerve causing the foot and toe numbness or if they are unrelated. ...Read more

Compartment syndrome: If leg is swollen, two biggest concerns are a blood clot (which would not resolve with a cortisone injection) and compartment syndrome which is where the swelling is compressing the flow of blood and nerves into your foot which is a concern, but it doesn't usually come and go over two years. See your MD. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. You indicated that you gained 30 pounds in one week - usually that rapid a weight gain is due to fluid retention. The swelling of your lower extremities helps to support that idea. I don't know if the blood work, and ultrasounds were done before or after that weight gain. Even if a definitive cause is not known, your doctor should be able to help diuress some of that fluid (if that is infact what it is). I am a psychiatrist, so i can not provide you with a second opinion. However, if you had not yet had that level of weight gain, please get this reassessed by your provider. Also ask about help to reduce the fluid that is being retained in your lower extremities. In the meantime, you may wish to sit with your legs propped up, so that you won't have so much gravitational pull on the fluids. ...Read more
