The swelling is in my right hand all the way to my elbow. It is NOTICEABLE bigger than my other arm -- to the point where I can't wear long sleeved shirts because the forearm part of the shirt does not fit. If I carry bags or something with that arm, it leaves an impression on the arm that lasts for a few minutes. There is no pain at all and the only time I really notice a change is when I exercise vigorously and then it feels as if it is getting tighter in my skin. However when I cool down, that feeling goes away.
I've been to my share of doctors trying to figure this out. I've had my blood tested, I've had X-rays, a bone density test, and even tried icing and wrapping it to see if that would help. I'm really frustrated because I don't know where else to go to try to get this fixed. I'm going on two years now with this "obese" arm.
Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
