Could there ever be a case in which pitting edema occurs in the head?
I too have pitting edema on my scalp (top of my head) I also get it in my legs Left and right) arms and face. If I have a tight sleeve or bracelet on, the marks will remain on my forearms/wrists for an hour or more. Diuretics help, and I don't use salt. I have had a kidney and heart work up, and all were negative. When I wear my mask to snorkel, it leaves a ring on my face!
I wish I knew what caused it. After all my tests were negative, the doctor just said "take a diuretic"! I don't take it every day, usually once a week, but can lose five to seven pounds when I do!
