Swelling and numbness of the foot
Surgeon-phlebologist-lymphologist, surgeon of the first category
Hello, Elena Olegovna!
More than two months on legs puffiness,increasing at the end of the day. An aching all over my leg, heaviness; if it's hot, the feet begin to sweat most of the body as a whole. I can not even understand how it's better for me: to move (I mean actively) or not, and so and so the pain does not pass. At night, a little swelling occurs, after the weekend I try to lie with my legs raised to the top-puffiness almost completely disappears, but there is numbness and pain is another one arises. There are no external manifestations on the veins at all.
I ask you to advise what examinations you should take.

Swelling may be the cause of numbness in the legs. Any swelling by the evening will intensify (the longer you are on your feet). The cause of the edema should be sought. If the veins are fine, the cause may be in the lymphatic vessels. This numbness will increase with an increase in edema. And the appearance of pain is typical for a fairly large swelling. If there is not a lot of edema, but just a feeling of heaviness and lengthening of the legs - perhaps the reason - osteochondrosis of the lumbar-cervical spine.
Accordingly, it is necessary to do duplex scanning of vessels of the lower extremities, and visit a phlebologist or vascular surgeon. If they say that it's all right to examine the spine.
Sincerely, Elena Belyanina.
