lymphodema and gastric symptomsI have struggled with lymphodema for several years now. Over a decade. It was initially thought to be gluten related but I have been gluten free for almost a decade now and while it was better for awhile it is bad again. No matter how healthy I eat and exercise I do not lose weight and continue to have edema in hands and feet/legs. At times the marks from my socks are still there hours later.
In the past year I developed chronic watery stool. Initially I thought it was the magnesium I was taking for the fibromyalgia symptoms. But in the last six months, I began to bloat almost immediately upon eating and feeling full right away. I have extreme flatulence as well. Everything is very foul smelling.
My blood pressure runs high, and spiked about 3 weeks ago at 197/122. At that time I discovered that low potassium can play a part in hbp and I recall the nurse telling me once that my blood work showed low potassium but I was told to 'eat a banana'. I believe that if after several years its continued decline could cause the hbp. Indeed within three days of adding potassium citrate supplement it lowered to 142/97. Not awesome but certainly better.
I appreciate any input you could possibly provide! Thank you!
