Foot swelling

Posted by Just a girl on 5/28/02 at 14:41 (085465)

I went to a wedding on the 26th of april and after the wedding both of my feet were swollen. I have never had this problem before. I had just bought brand new sandals for the wedding and they fit just fine. The next day my right foot went down to normal size but left foot is still swollen. And now my right foot is swollen again. I have tried everything that I can think of. Please advise

Thank you

Sweetheart, please don't call yourself 'just a girl' -- because you are a very *special* girl.

About your feet. I hope that you won't be wearing those sandals anymore, and that going back to your regular shoes have helped. If your feet are still bothering you today, you should see a doctor. In the meantime, keeping your foot elevated, applying ice (12 minutes at a time - no more), and generally staying off your feet should help with the swelling.
