Buffs, dear, if your doctor tells you that a swelling in your legs is all in your head, it's him who would need to see a shrink, and not you. There are , as I said before, various possible causes for such swellings and discomfort in your limbs, especially in sombody with kidney problems, and it is essential to see a doctor and have it checked out properly. If you have discovered some magical way in which to be in perfect physical health and to make yoyurself swell up, they I'm sure you can be on the front page of the medical Journal next week. No, of course I don't think you can make yourself do this, and of course it's not all in your head.
But people with various kinds of kidney problems, including nephritis, can start to get kidney failure, which causes, among other things, keeping too much fluid in the body, and swelling of the feet and legs. And that's a serous and urgent sign that they need proper medical treatment for it.
GO and see a good doctor ; maybe go to the casualty dept of a good major hospital, and get all this properly checked out. Listen to the doctors, and take their advice. You are valuable, and should let yourself get more ill or neglect yourself.
GO! and tell us, when it's over, what the doctors said. And get that biopsy. How could a urologist say ther's nothing wrong-- but you need a biopsy ?
