One of many aggravating side effects of RSD is edema – the collection of fluid in various limbs. This is annoying for an endless number of reasons, but i’ve found the top three are:
1. It hurts
2. Socks and shoes don’t fit properly
3. Bending joints is difficult, which causes you to move like a robot (naturally this is actually a bit fun at first, but the novelty wears off after an hour or so)
The only benefit is if you have pitting edema – which makes your skin feel like silly putty- then it can at least be entertaining. If you have to deal with edema, particularly in the feet and legs, here are some ways to have fun with it.
then watch it take shape as your feet swell up.
3. Build a small lego city, and proceed to smashing with your swollen legs while pretending to be Godzilla
