Patient : I just found out that i am about one month pregnant. i havent gone to the doctors yet but my left ankle and leg are hurting really bad, and are swollen. it has been a month since this has started and before i found out that i was pregnant the doctors couldnt find out what was wrong with me. i looked up pre eclampsia and this is not my first pregnancy and i am barely in my first trimester. also elevating my legs is doing nothing to make it stop. what can this be?
