I have had adhesion disease for a few years also.  About six months ago, my ankles started swelling bad.  They checked my heart since I do have heart problems.  They checked for alot of things and haven't really came up with a concrete diagnosis.  My Dr. did say that he thought it was from the adhesions.  My feet and legs swell up to the knee and the swelling looks like I have a sunburn. I am glad to see I am not the only one to get this.  I have not been diagnosed with Fibro.

I saw your comment on having fibromyalgia.  I would love to know how you
feel with it and if anyone else suffers with it also.  Since the onset of my
adhesions issues 17 years ago, I slowly developed all over muscle and joint
pain, swelling, etc.  It took years and years of tests and misdiagnoses from
Lupus to MS to, 3 yrs ago, they've diagnosed me with FIBROMYALGIA. 
This is the only one that seems right on.  I was put on Lyrica and
Cymbalta.  It took huge doses of both to keep the pain under control, only
to increase my abdominal spasms, cause massive weight gain, all around my
middle (45 lbs in less than a year) and extensive swelling in my legs and
hands.  It also increased my blood pressure significantly and caused lots of
sweating and "hot flashes".  Since about two months ago, I weaned off the
meds.  I'd rather deal with the pain, then all the side effects.  My BP is
normal again, I've already dropped ove! r 10 lb s. but the pain in even more
intense.  The docs have agreed to send me for physcial therapy a few times a
week.  I can't even stretch my abdomen without going into a horrific spasm.
What do you experience with it?  Is anyone else out there suffering with
these types of symptoms with the same or other diagnosis?
God Bless all of us...
