    hi

    My best friend is 22 + 5 and she has suffered from the following symptoms last night:

    My legs & ankles have been swollen , cavles are really hard ( like when you have worked out and need stretching ) Left one is worse
    Legs were swollen and I felt sick and dizzy on Tuesday night could this be connected? If so what can I do ?

    can anyone suggest anything about these symptoms whether they had experienced this as well. She is 5 foot 1 and she was a size 6 when she fell pregnant, (dont know if this is relevant). she is seeing her midwife tomorrow, any suggestions on what to ask.

    I think the heat may be something to do with this as I am suffering too, however it could be the sign of something else. It's very rare but get her to ask her midwife about DVT. If you tell the mw about the swellings and symptoms etc, she will check all these things out anyway.

    All the best.

    Hi

    Was you in the chat room yesterday. if so can you remember a lady who said that she was waiting for blood results becuase she had been itchy and it might have been a liver problem?

    I use the computer at work, as my home is still in the loft, and i have been locked out of the chat room and i was just wondering how she had got on. i cant for the life of me remember her name.
