Have You Had Swollen Feet?

Have You Had Swollen Feet?

I suddenly have swollen feet. I can make an indent with my fingers. I haven't been diagnosed, I've been putting off going to the doctor because I feel like a hypochondriac, but this seems bad and it's uncomfortable.

Swelling of the legs can be caused by many things. What you have (leaving an indentation) is called 'pitting edema' and you should see your Dr about it.

Yes I do. It hurts to even walk at times for me. I am on a diuretic to release extra fluid in the body and wear compression stockings to try to keep swelling down.You should go get it checked. It may possibly a clot or something else that can be alleviated with a diuretic...but definitely get it checked by Dr. Hope this helps.
