Did they test your blood protein level and liverfunctions?

I have a liver kidney funtion test done annually
I am on blood pressure pills which was changed a week ago to see if that is the problem to date legs feels the same and this morning one of those where u think should i get up or not
Blood protein i am not so sure if that has been tested
this problem with my legs started round about february and is driving me nuts dreading this summer because i live on the coast not sure if the heat is going to add to more swelling as it is skin like tigling feels if it may tear

Just thinking - some drugs can also cause this - like anti-inflammatory drugs ( naproxen etc) and some heart medicine...
