If you are suffering from lymphedema, you may only experience mild symptoms at first. You may notice that one leg appears slightly bigger than the other. You may feel mild discomfort in the leg or a feeling of heaviness. As lymphedema progresses, you may experience aching and pain in the affected limb. The swelling will be quite noticeable at this point, and you may find using the leg difficult. The skin over your leg may become hard and feel thick.
