swollen right foot and calf


been to the doctor several times and they have done numberous tests on me to see why my right foot and leg are swollen and everything has been negative. it has been almost 2 months now and my foot is now starting to turn blue. now, they are saying its bergers disease. i thought bergers disease had to do with the kidneys. how can this be?


  1. —————–Bergers is a vascular disease. If you were a heavy smoker that could cause it. You need treatmenty by a vascular surgeon and must be very careful about cuts on the feet, etc. just as a person with diabetes must. cuts and ingrown toenails can cause infections and may remain as open ulcers UNLESS properly treated.
