If I understand you correctly, and you have one legswells more than another, then you need to exclude the transferred thrombosis of deep veins. The second common cause of this condition is the ankle joint problem. You can start with an examination with a phlebologist and ultrasound examination of veins (duplex scanning). This will allow you to accurately assess the condition of the veins and either make a diagnosis or narrow down the range of diagnostic search.
Sincerely, Elena Belyanina.
Dear Elena Olegovna, after thrombosis I take 3 tab. warfarin daily to maintain INR = 2. →
