Hello. Last Night I Noticed Both My Hand Fingers Were

default
Posted on Thu, 23 Jun 2022
Question: Hello. Last night I noticed both my hand fingers were swelling. Wasn’t severe but I can feel them. I also could tell the top of my foot on both feet were slightly swelled as well. It lasted for about an hour. They finally returned to normal. I checked my BP. It was normal. I even checked my glucose it too was normal. I do have stage 2 kidney disease but it’s been stable since about 2005. Not sure what happened I was just sitting in my rocker recliner when I noticed it. I do believe it’s happened once several years ago though.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .

I shall be happy if you can post me more details to help me in making precise comments and suggestions .
1) What is your age ?
2) Are you Diabetic?
3) Do you have high Blood Pressure?
4) Are you taking any medications ?

Based on the facts that you have posted you have stage 2 kidney disease and noticed momentary swelling of fingers and ankle joints .

In view the swelling being for only an hour and transient with normal blood pressure and blood sugar levels it has little pathological significance ..

Since you are known to have stage two kidney disease I would suggest you to consult your physician or Nephrologist and get revaluated for Renal function .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions, I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
