I am having a lot of pain in my legs and I tire very easily. When I sit down the pain goes away. My ankles and toes swell easily. Taking water pills and wearing compression socks but the doctors can’t figure out why the pain in my legs.

      Dilated inferior vena cava can be detected on an echo this would be indicative of the swelling more than likely due to blood pooling. I would take a tilt table test for POTS. Do you have a high heart rate? Get on a beta blocker and try to keep your feet up above your head whenever possible to help with circulation. The compression socks should help. What compression level do you use? I use 15-20.

      Could it be restless leg syndrome
