I have been to brazil so have been on 4 x 9 hours flights plus

Resolved Question:

I have been to brazil so have been on 4 x 9 hours flights plus 4 short internal flights in the last 2 weeks. On arrival my feet and ankles were very swollen and painful and over the 12 days never fully recovered. After my return flight the same has happened and I now have a large red patch on my left shin that is hot and I feel very light headed and have stomach cramps and diarrhea. Should I seek medical attention?
