I have been wondering for several days if this may be related to my back problems, or is it a seperate issue:

On our recent car trip of approx. 2500 miles, my lower legs and feet swelled...REALLY swelled....on the first day out...and we stopped and walked, did all the right things. They swelled, burned and ached...thought they would split open... This has happened to me before..on trips/flights, but I am just curious. I do not have major heart problems/kidney problems//other than the CYST that keeps scaring all the doctors..with it's appearance. I drink a lot of water, and try to avoid sodium when traveling for obvious reasons. This problem takes several days to clear up and I am really tired of it happening...fat legs and feet on vacation is not good...

Second question: Could the UGLY cyst in the kidney be causing some of the back pain?? Doctors say no...but you just have to wonder...this is on the right side also, which is the side I get a lot of back/leg pain on...

Know that those are dumb questions, but sometimes you just wonder...

By the way, the UGLY kidney cyst is going to have another CT scan this morning...it showed up on the MRI for my lower back again, and the doctors got all upset, they are calling the sucker a ""mass""...sure, it was a cyst for several years, was a cyst last year, after all of the tests (it showed up on a MRI last year too....gurrrrrrr) This thing has cost a fortune...litterally....but they make me go through all of the tests every time they see it on a MRI...even though I tell them it's NOTHING...they don't believe me. Wish they would take my back pain etc. as seriously... oh well.

Let you know later, that it's diagnosed as a "cyst"....
