    I mentioned on another post that my legs and ankles are swelling again. Always happens when the weather turns nice

    So I dug out my compression socks. I'll have to get back in to the habit of putting them on before I swing my legs out of bed.

    Nothing really seems easy the swelling once it starts. But if I get the compression socks on quick enough, it's usually not as bad.

    Deb;
    As has been mentioned, edema (swelling) is something that we deal with often with this disease. However, I agree that it might be beneficial for you to have your kidneys checked, just in case.
