Nairobi , Nairobi , Kenya
I am Betty. I am 27 years old and from Kenya. My illness started in January of 2017. That's when I started feeling pain on my left foot and went to clinic. They gave me some tablets and wrapped my leg because they didn't know what the problem might be. After a while my leg started swelling more and more but I couldn't do anything about it because I had no money. After a while I got a stable job and I decided to do go to hospital for a check-up. I went through various tests including doppler scan but still they didn't see anything wrong with my body or my leg. Then I got an appointment with a specialist and ruled out lymphedema. In my situation I feel no pain and no itching. It normally swells when I walk for a long distance ,but I really wish I can get some advice on what to do which may help the swelling go away because I really feel bad when people ask me about my leg and I get no answers. Also my mom is always stressed up about the whole thing, so any advice or recommendations will be helpful. Thank you.
