I suffered from repeated problems with my lower legs, with swelling and them being hot to the touch. My leg problems occurred usually twice or more a year. I was given antibiotics, which were changed four times due to lack of change or system would not heal with its use. My feet would swell to a point of not being able to use dress shoes. It was very hard to stand for a long period of time. Sleeping was not restful. I would have trouble climbing stairs or ladders and needed to sit or lie down and elevate my feet and legs.
Now, my knees are stronger, and my legs are not swollen. My feet do not swell, and I have a lot more energy.
