2. Fatigue in a Limb

Just like a sensational heaviness of the affected area, fatigue of that same limb might also occur during stage zero of lymphedema. Do not ignore these very early symptoms of lymphedema. The internal changes have already begun and will respond if treated. If you notice a heaviness or fatigue in a region of the arm or leg, talk to your doctor immediately. It can reduce the chance of edema worsening into more uncomfortable symptoms.
