You are my story! My right leg was affected by my third pregnancy. My Dr. kept an eye on it, had my were the Jobst for 22 weeks(yuck! summer, Houston,TX not a good look with shorts!) and had me seen by a heart specialitst (since this has to do with circulation of blood and clots that can end up in your heart). Heart guy tells me everything ok. my valves have given out so the blood pools in the leg causing the blood vessels to stretch and bulge.
The person who tells you see Chiropractor has a good idea. Turns out my pelvic bone is tilted causeing baby to be on the right side a putting presure on the valves causing them not to close correctly. However, adjustments won't fix the damage that has already been done.
Be sure to put the Jobst on before you ever get out of bed. Once you let the blood flow down by standing, the hose can't do their job of keeping it from pooling in the leg. I bathed at night, just before bed and then washed my hair over the side of the tub in the morning after I had put my hose on in bed. I thought I would go into labor trying to get those things on without standing up! Also, use full jobst hose and not just the single leg style.
Pain got significantly better a couple of weeks after birth and 5 years later I only have pain when I excercise and during my cycle. My leg looks better than it did in pregnacy but it still looks like an old lady leg. My friends were so suprised that it happend to me because they thought it only happened to people who are very over weight and I gain less than 30 lbs each pregancy, so this really doesn't have to have something to do with weight. I intend to have proceedure done but it is not a top priority because it looks worse than it feels.
My advice... don't panic, keep it monitored, see a specialist at least once to make sure there are no clots, wear your jobst everyday, and try to get off your feet as much as possible elevating your legs above your heart.
