Arthritis and Lipodema


Does anyone else have Arthritis and Lipodema?

I am finding my new compression leggings seem to make my pain worse. Even though everything I have read says this shouldn't be the case!

I am really struggling and doctors don't seem to understand how the two conditions overlap.

Any advice welcome.
