My feet has been swollen recently.I've been trying to keep off them anyone know how to help?

My sweet baby boys Josh and Jesse were born into the arms of Jesus on January 11th 2008. They will always be missed and remain living in my heart forever!

Unfortunatley, I don't think there is a fix. My feet and ankles are swollen too. The weather isn't helping. Staying hydrated, putting your feet up and staying away from overly salty foods is all you can do. Even my flipflops are tight.

my feet have been getting super swollen these days too. i've actually found that days where i'm able to get out and walk a little, it really helps. it seems counter intuitive, but getting some leg exersize in helps the blood flow (which is what swollen feet is... blood pooling in your feet bc your circulation isn't keeping up with the extra blood in your system and is having trouble pulling it back up from your lower extremitie). I also try to keep them elevated in the evening. HTH!

Drink water, avoid salt, and elevate them when you can.
