Up and down...down and up... very discouraging. Yesterday for some reason my legs were swollen and hurt most in the morning and by afternoon they were much better. Perhaps keeping the legs elevated for about 2-3 hours in the morning helped. It is very awkward to elevate the legs while working at a computer. I asked my supervisor for an ergonomic evaluation but the company will not order that until I have a doctor's letter telling what my medical condition is and her recommendations (elevate legs while seated). I also have called my doctor's office to ask for some testing of the veins because I am concerned about the feet and legs feeling cold and numb. This has never happened before, though I have had chronic low grade swelling for years. If she does not send me to someone I can refer myself because of my insurance. Hopefully, something can be done about this problem.
Hope it is a beautiful Tuesday for everybody.
