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

Have 640 ana, 74 IgA tests, severe stomach pain, swollen red feet/legs, photosensitivity, fatigue, dizziness when walking.  Autoimmune disorder?

Iga of 74mg/dl is normal. See a good internist, and if necessary, a rheumatologist as well. Photosensitivity has also causes other than sle, including side effects of several medications. ...Read more

Do i need to go to the ER for the past 4 days I have had swollen legs ankle feet fingers and face now it hurts to walk on my feet they burning?

No: No, but do make an appointment with your regular primary physician. Although it is a scary condition, it is probably not an emergency and you'll be better served by seeing your pcp. If he or she thinks it's serious, then you may be admitted but it'll be better and more efficient care than the ed from your symptoms. Hope this helps! ...Read more

RCC patient, stg. 4 metasises in lungs,liver and skull. Swollen feet. Now has swollen legs (up to thighs) is this from the cancer? On lasiks for 2+wks

Possible: Very possible. Swelling may occur via a few different mechanisms in this illness: 1) if normal liver tissue has been replaced by cancer then insufficient circulating proteins can be produced by the liver resulting in a decrease in oncotic or "pulling pressure" of the circulating bloodstream resulting in fluid seeping out into dependent areas of body like the legs. 2) tumor bulk could block IVC ...Read more
