Red and swollen legs? is this from POTS?

    hi, a relative of mine, after being out and about more than usual, thus not getting to put her feet up, says she has red legs after showering. She also has edema, not related to showering.

    I have had something similar (in the past when more able to go out).

    Is this from POTS?

    ETA: she is diagnosed with POTS (they did not do TTT) and I told her to email her doc; I just wondered if others with OI have similar.

    Hmmm, I have had some edema in my feet (not legs) for a long time. I have not had the red legs though, but my feet sometimes go very red. I do not have POTS, but do have NMH, the other OI.
