Update on the Health…. I need help!!!!

People who have been following me on all my other social medias have known that my health has recently gotten a little dip.  I sort of think it was stemming from living in my apt in Taiwan the last trip, because my first symptoms of edema [swollen feet and ankles and sometimes legs] started after it, when I went to Florida [DISNEY!!!!]

I was fine back at home in Boston minus some foot pains occasionally or if I ate things that were too salty….

Coming to Taiwan, most of the trip my legs/feet were fine until I got to Hong Kong.  But even  when I arrived to Taiwan, some swelling would come but I’d drink liquids, flush it out and elevate my legs to help it.

In Japan, I walked a lot and it was actually quite ok.  It wasn’t until I came back to Taiwan and started getting my surgeries [small things, ear, belly button, leg] and taking antibiotics that my health really deteriorated.  And then I found out that the sides of my bed [It’s up against the wall] underneath had NOT been cleaned out in forever and it was thick black crusted mold, dust, cockroaches, crap, etc. — waa Taiwan, the land of humidity and dirty air…. and fucking cockroaches dying under my bed.

I actually went to the hospital and ER a few times and contemplating going again tonight or tmw morning to ER to get a second opinion.  My blood circulation pills and another weird pill helped a little but I still had so much pain.

SO, yesterday I got a new mattress and fully cleaned out the grossness surrounding my bed which I’ve sucked in for months and months… gag… and hopefully that’ll help.  I also found lists of things to avoid eating when puffy… basically meats [esp beef waa – I was craving it], dairy, fats, nuts, seeds, shellfish, anything oily buttery…. cold raw fruits and veg… waaaa what do I eat?!?!

But at least they have a nice list of things I can eat… adzuki bean congee, soybeans, barley, pumpkin, chicken, barley, parsley, clams, pineapple, grapes, soybeans, scallions, vinegar, seaweeds, watermelon, zucchinni, etc… I’ll post pics of the screen captions I got.

Does anyone have experience with this?  I’m in so much pain.  Any help would be a big help!!! Thanks!!!!

I’ve been crying a lot from the frustration and pain.

    • Nope it’s not gout… I got a fully body check up.. I thought it’d be kidneys but they’re fine too… currently I’m back on blood circulation medicine
