For about a decade I took Mirapex for PD and a short time thereafter , my foot , ankle, and lower leg (all left side) was swollen and stayed that way for more than six years. I asked about the swelling and finally it was diagnosed as lymphedema (sometimes spelled lymphoedema). Doing my homework led to Mirapex as the source for the lymphedema. And, stopping the Mirapex , stopped the persistant swelling and the related ulcers began to heal having been open for a year and more. Three separate bouts with infection if untreated could have caused loss of a limb. I'm not diabetic. Any comments ?
