When to go to the doctor
How long should you wait when you have a problem to let it "fix itself" or should you call right away? Im really concerned about the way my feet look after being on them ALL DAY for orientation today and yesterday. They are big and swollen and have those red speckles everywhere like when I had vasculitis before....And without saying anything to my mom other than my feet were really swollen she looked over while I was sitting with my feet up in my recliner and said the bottom of your feet kind of look purplish again (not the Raynauds) like when I had vasculitis....My arms can barely move....like I cant lift them up. That part is whats making me more concerned because I can reason that my legs hurt and my feet are swollen from all the walking but nothing should be making my arms feel like this. Should I wait a day or two, or should I call? I keep down playing it to my mom. I came home and could barely stand up long enough to like get food. So I laid down and passed out for two hours. I dont want them to know how bad I feel right now. But I couldn't even get up to get my dinner and asked my mom if she could bring me a plate and she was like uh no so I joked that I was still half asleep with sore feet and she did. But I really could barely move to get out of this chair. UGH. Could simply being on my feet too much even cause vasculitis or am I just worrying too much because of everything that happened a few months ago????
