Ok...I didn't go to my doctors appointment this morning. I'm absolutly way too tired of all of this crap. There is no way I could have rode in a car that long. When I called to let them know that I wasn't coming; they told me to call them when I can make it back down there.

After keeping my legs up when I got home, it helped to make them feel a bit better. I had my daughter take a few pictures. My right foot and leg is the worse. They again look bad.
I was reading the reciept a bit ago and it has as my diagnosis, dyspnea! This is what it is: 

Dyspnea: Difficult or labored breathing; shortness of breath.

Dyspnea is a sign of serious disease of the airway, lungs, or heart. The onset of dyspnea should not be ignored but is reason to seek medical attention.

The word dyspnea comes the Greek "dys-", difficulty + "pnoia", breathing = difficulty breathing. Dyspnea is the American spelling and dyspnoea is the British (mis)spelling.

Common Misspellings: dyspenia, dypsena, dypsnea, dyspena

I just don't get it! I even asked for help.

I looked at the disk that has my MRI on it. If anyone can read them, let me know and I can send you some of the pictures.
God bless all of you.

I'm so sorry you are going through so much.
I hope you get a some relief - I iwll keep you in my prayers

Your radiologist should read and interpret your MRI, and tell you what it means. Don't know what that crowd think they are doing by just giving you the films.
Dyspnoea is a symptom of underlying illness. The illness is pulmonary oedema, brought on by a combination of fibro, MS and possibly cardiac failure. I am sitting here 4,000 miles away, not a qualified doctor, and giving you diagnoses that your doctors are seemingly incapable of making. It's an absolute disgrace.

Your foot is really swollen.  I wish they would do something for that.  I can understand your frustration in going for help and not getting what you want.  I think you need to tell them what you want and see what they say.  Take care Lisa.

I feel so bad for you Lisa.  You have too much water retention.  You would feel so much better if they'd give you a water pill so you could get rid of a lot of it.  Hope they do something soon for you.  Luv ya!
