    Hi all.

    My feet and ankles have been swollen since Nov. I had lots of tests and a doppler ultrasound which showed venous insufficiency.

    I'm a teacher and am trying very hard -,putting feet up when I can, support hose, walking, stretching, and inserts in my shoes. the lady at the specialty store for orthopedics suggested MBT's. Anyone try those? I've also been talking horse chestnut and Chinese herbs. Can't really afford too much acupuncture. Everything so far only helps to a point.

    Thank you.

    Best to all.
