I had a sudden onset of one leg, ankle and foot swelling.  It is causing pain and a loss of flexibility in the ankle. No injury, long trips or infec.

Not debatable...: Whether or not you presently have these symptoms are had them in the past, an obvious concern is a possible blood clot. This dangerous condition can happen without a clear history of trauma, prolonged inactivity or for that matter, without any apparent reason at all. Regardless of the actual cause, the goal now is to have it evaluated immediately. Untreated, a DVT can have catastrophic effects. ...Read more

I take lunesta (eszopiclone) an swelling in my legs/feet swelling is 3 to 4 times the size of normal, it's on an off the doctor said its due to lunesta (eszopiclone), true?

Unlikely: This is not a common side effect of lunesta (eszopiclone), (eszopiclone) especially with the amount of swelling you are reporting. Did the swelling start after you began lunesta (eszopiclone)? Does it go away if you do not take lunesta (eszopiclone)? I would probably investigate this further. ...Read more

I'm having leg and feet swelling that is now causing sharp pains in my foot and pins and needles. I am a 54 yr. Old male. 6'2" 299 lbs should I go to the ER or wait and call my dr. In the morning

If : If only one foot or leg is swollen, it usually means there is a local problem (like lymphedema, varicose veins, thrombophlebitis, etc.). But in your case, since both feet and legs are swollen, it means you are retaining fluid for some reason. The four most common causes of fluid retention deal with the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys. When the tissues are swollen, it can cause hydrostatic pressure on the smaller nerves which can produce pain. "pins and needles" is a feeling typical of pain associated with nerves. Given your age and weight, i would also wonder about diabetes, since nerve pain, tingling, numbness and such in the feet are major symptoms of diabetes. Other symptoms of diabetes include frequent thirst, frequent urination and blurred vision. If your fluid retention is related to the heart of lungs, an ominous sign that would require an immediate er visit is shortness of breath or chest pain. In the absence of shortness of breath or chest pain, i think a call to your general md for an appointment asap would suffice. Blood tests would be able to disclose diabetes, or problems with the heart, lungs, liver or kidneys. Good luck! ...Read more
