Legs have been swollen for two weeks I have dibeates and hypertension I was recently dignoised with chronic kidney failure. For the past two weeks my legs and ankles have been swollen really bad, after I soak them or get up from laying down they burn but
Swollen legs. What stage of chronic kidney disease (ckd) are you in? See a nephrologist and get a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein. If you have ckd 1 or 2, you will likely need to see a cardiologist to evaluate your heart's ejection fraction, as ckd of this degree is not normally associated with swelling. If you have a high protein in your collection, that could be the cause of your edema.
I . I think you might have two problems here. Chronic renal failure (kidney disease) is well-known to cause fluid retention, and thus, swelling in the legs and feet (gravity brings the fluid down there). While there certainly is a neuropathy associated with kidney disease, it's much more prevalent in diabetes, especially if your diabetes is not well controlled. What might relate the two symptoms you're having is this: hydrostatic pressure on the small nerves from the swelling may be making any minor neuropathy feel worse than it is. I don't think you're dealing with an "emergency" situation, but you most definitely should call your doctor today and let him or her know what's going on. I would not advise soaking them, since warmth will tend to dilate your blood vessels and make the swelling worse. I hope this helps.
