Hi, a few years ago it started in the summer, my feet swell up left more than right. GP says High blood pressure take water tablets, have been taking them ever since.
Then my feet started burning as well but only in the hot weather and if I had been standing/walking for a while (have mobility problems anyway so not a great deal of standing/walking involved).
Then, about 18months ago I started to get hot flushes in which my face and neck burn as if they are on fire (I'm way past the menopause by the way!) this seems to happen in summer or winter hot or cold at any time of day and I've been puzzled over it.
Then I accidently found out about EM and thought Yes! that's me, but as I read further I realised that I didn't want it to be EM as it sounds quite nasty and I've got enough problems to go on with thank you very much.
I have asthma, arthritis, rhinitis, high blood pressure and vitiligo,(I think that's all!)
I used to love the summer sun but because of my skin condition vitiligo I have to stay in the shade, and now I even struggle to stay outdoors in the heat because of my feet.
I am due to see my GP 2nd July and am trying to gather information ready to bombard him with. I have printed out some, but not sure if it's enough.
Sorry it's so long winded but I hope someone will give me some tips on how to approach this with my GP, as I know it's going to be hard making him listen to me.
