I have been having edema and pitting edema in my

Patient : I have been having edema and pitting edema in my feet and ankles and sometimes up through my knees for 9 years. I was on 25 mg of hydrochlorithiazide. They bumped it up to 50 mg two months ago. It does not seem to be doing anything anymore. I have been to multiple doctors who do not know why it is happening. I am 34 now it started at 25. I was a very good weight when it started and am now currently overweight. Any ideas?
