Last year I was diagnosed with Cellulitis (right leg was swollen, shiny, red and it actually squeaked and I was given strong anti-biotics. It flares every now and then and I am not convinced it ever went away completely. Just hit your site and noticed this condition (EDEMA) and am now not sure if this is what I have/had? Should I go back to the Doctor? Incidentally I have suffered from years from The 'Restless Leg Syndrome.' Last August I had a Morons Neuroma removed from my left foot and am experiencing pain in toes and foot in right foot. I love to walk and I work on my feet, but I suffered from aching feet as a child, especially when I sat on a chair that was too high.

I wanted to share my story. I was diagnosed with interstitial lung disease likely connected with some autoimmune disease yet to be diagnosed. I was on up to 80mg prednisone since then and am now down to 20mg. I have had edema in my legs, feet and ankles for most of that time. Just about three weeks ago I started a gluten-free diet and all the edema is gone. It's like a miracle. Do some research about protein malabsorption and edema. I’m not sure what the connection is, but my shoes fit again and my legs, face and hands are back to normal..
