I am just curious, I have had EM for around 1+ year ish, and its quite mild. No pain, no itching, and I live like normal, but the problem is when I get overheated, then the foot/toe gets very hot/red with enlarged veins, and that gets quite uncomfortable rather then painful. And the summers is very annoying, as soon as I walk long distances the toes gets so red, and the foot gets a bit swelly with the veins too.
Other then that, I can workout at the gym, I can shower in hot water(foot and toes gets red tho), I can eat normally etc.
So i am just curios, since I live in Norway, and since this is still a rare condition, and it would take time to get a doctor to diagnose me, what should I do next? I have taken bloodtest, and they came back normally. So, should I wait until the symptoms gets worse(painful) and then search for help, or now?
You should go to a doctor if your symptoms are bothersome (and they quite clearly are bothersome to you).
I tend to want to tell you to go ahead and get established with a doctor like now, get a baseline on file, then if things should progress you won’t be trying to find someone and trying to get treatment for something when there’s no comparison to what was normal.
They are a bit bothersome in the summer, yes.
But its not like I have horrific pain, like 90% pain of the EM-patients visit the doc for, mine is more uncomfortable and annyoing, and I can live completely normally. I also dont see what the doc will do? Its not any cure anyways. Maybe some meds or creams?
The other thing is that I live in Norway, so only to find a doctor who treats EM-patients will take week/months here
If the doctor can’t treat the physical symptoms, perhaps he or she can alleviate the anxiety related to them. You’ve asked a variation of this same basic question over and over again for nearly a year. You’re obviously extremely worried by what’s happening. I think you’re well overdue to at least talk to a doctor about your anxiety regarding EM.
