Common Questions and Answers about Swollen feet in summer

swollen

My feet are getting swollen every day from the time I wake up and by the time I go to bed, especially during a summer they may rich a triple of their normal size. It started years ago when I was pregnant with my son and now when I getting older (42 years old) it stop me from exercising and losing weight. I never visit a podiatrist but regular doctors can’t find anything wrong.
Hi my feet used to swell occasionally in the summer an it was not a big deal. However, my feet have been constantly swollen for the past 2-2.5 months. Its both of my feet, ankles, and lower legs. I have not injured them and have no other symptoms to report. I have tried compression stockings and they don't seem to help. I have tried walking every day and still the swelling persisted. They are swollen from the moment i wake up in the morning, it does not go away with eleveation. Any ideas?
My grandmother always told me if I started to swell to tell your doctor asap because it could mean you have some type of toxic poisoning. She lost a baby to it. But dont stress to much untill you talk to your doctor because being pregnant makes you sensitive to salt as well. I have had mild swelling due to my salt intake.
I was wondering how many of you have swollen feet and / or ankles this summer?? Craig's feet are so swollen today that he can't see his ankle bones. I was wondering how common this is??
GRose- I just had a huge plate of mexican food so there's tons of sodium in that, I didn't know my feet were swollen when I was enjoying my delicious enchiladas. SweetAngel- I haven't had any bad symptoms so far so a little swelling isn;t so bad but I'll definitely rest and hopefully it'll go down soon. I have the anatomy scan appointment on Monday so they'll check on me on Monday. Thanks!!
Can you imagine being full on prego and having to wear pants and coats and putting swollen feet in shoes and boots? Heck no! I think dresses and sandals will be the most comfy thing ever. And you can eat popsicles and fruit and drink lemonade :) it'll be fine!
They also sell stockings or hose that hold in the swelling. Not very comfortable to say the least and I was pregnant in the summer and refused to wear them but they do help considerably. Have your doctor watch out for preeclampsia. You can get it with excessive swelling. I was extremely swollen by the end of the pregnancy that they pulled my off of work a month early because they were afraid that I was too swollen.
I will also be moving on to IVF but I won't start my Lupron until later June and have the IVF done in July. I will also be on bc pills starting when af comes. Good luck to you!
Where I live its been ssssssssooooooooo HOT and humid all summer long. I am swollen like crazy esp in my feet. I am drinking a lot of water (I always have) and my BP is running good so I am not concerned at this point. I was just wondering if anybody did anything that helped the swelling. I do work on my feet all day long but come home and lay down after work. Any suggestions would be great.
I've been freaking out about how much my feet have gotten swollen these past few days, its terrible!
Anyway, yesterday I noticed a lot of swelling in my feet and ankles. I mean, they look like I'm 80 years old!!! I know that some swelling at this point and in this hot Texas summer can be very normal. It's never happened to me before delivery. With 2, I have had some after delivery but not before. I try elevating my feet as much as I can but it's hard with so many kids to take care of. I still have things that have to be done.
Oh my goodness, I have a back injury and am on WCB, for the past 6 months my right knee has been swollen and very pain full. I am as well taking morphine 3-5 times per day. I have now swollen feet and ankles. I sleep and am in constant pain, I wake up and am still tired. It is very hard for me in the mornings barely make it to the washroom,the pain is so bad and to top it off, I as well have fallen asleep on the toilet and fallen and just missed my temple had a black eye.
Get off your feet. Swollen ankles are exacerbated by standing. Sit down in a comfortable chair. Step 3: Elevate your feet and hands. While sitting, place your feet on a stool. Your feet should be raised higher than your heart. Rest your hands on pillows so they are elevated higher than the rest of your arms. Step 4: Wear support socks and gloves. These specialty products are sometimes called compression socks, hose or gloves.
From time to time, it would swell up a bit, but as it didn't hurt and wasn't constant I sort of ignored it Well, I can't ignore it any longer. My left foot is very swollen and my right is slightly swollen. I have no pain with it. Any idea what this could be? Thanks.
I do not have any problems with my feet. This condition goes away in the summer and returns when winter comes. It is brought on by the following: going from cold to a warm room; getting stressed or worked up; social situations such as parties where I'm talking and "on". I also notice that when I drink, I really feel it the next morning- swollen, throbbing. I'm 44, very active, healthy, very social, 2 kids. It's getting worse.
purple, the doctor just said it's probobly because she's so little, and can't stay warm(this was summer time, and she was always bundled up, but I said ok doc w/e). Well ever since she was around 3months of age her feet get swollen, and redish on top and ice cold.
The joys of being pregnant in the summer. I had them at the end with both of my pregnancies, but it was definetly worse at the end when I was pregnant with my son in August in Florida!
So my question now is, what do I do to deal with the swelling, hot and tingly feeling I have mainly in my feet but slightly in my hands, too? My shoes are tight and uncomfortable and my feet constantly tingle and feel hot and tight. This just came on in the past day or two. Any suggestions? Anyone else experiencing this so early? I can't even imagine how bad it's going to get during the summer months!!
I told him her feet are ice cold all the time even in the summer. Today it was in the high 90's and both feet and toes were so swollen like little piggies. She had an MRI 3 weeks ago, and nothing showed there either. It is so disturbing, and I don't know where to turn next. It is frightening to see. Granted, my daughter doesn't have the best diet, but it isn't the worst. She eats what I give her - veggies, meat, fruit but then there are days with bagels, cold cut sandwiches, cereal.
He is walking around on our Paddock Paradise track and eating hay. He is apparently uriniating and passing fecal waste in his normal fashion. No heat to feet, no tenderness to pinch test on sole. He has been barefoot all his life - mustang trimmed. He seems his usual bright, curious self - but his sheath is still swollen and I know he's uncomfortable because he's lagging behind the band and self isolating - NOT normal haflinger behavior!
I finished my last chemo treatment one week ago. My ankles and feet are swollen and my toe nails are bothering me, they are sore. Is this anything to be concerned about in your opinion or just a new side effect of the treatments?
I have had this problem intermittently for years, though nowhere near as bad as it used to be. Now it's just in hot summer when I've been on my feet a lot. Years ago it was much much worse, and I was put on all sorts of diuretics and so on. Finally they said it was idiopathic edema, which I think is medicalese for 'Beats the h*ll out of me.' They had no clue, and still don't. But I don't think it has any connection with MS.
Please tell me if your hands are swollen mostly in the fingers and if your feet are swollen around the bunion area? I thought this was from sugar and wine but I haven't had any alcohol in weeks and my hands/feet are swollen again. I have been cleaning and working a lot with my hands but certainly not my feet!
My doc put me on antibiotic anyhow and it took almost a month to go away. In that time I felt crappy, achy, muscles, joints, back, and so on. Nothing in particular more general and not the same thing everyday. Then on June 13 my left foot was swollen with pitting edema. I had an ultrasound and it showed no clot but a node in the groin (I just found out recently the node was 26 cm). Then I had CT of abdomen and pelvis and that was negative except showed nodes both groins (23 & 24 cm).
Small red dots in various locations, but not densely in any location Increased taste sensitivity to spice (everything tastes spicey) Extreme sensitivity to cold, touching ice causes severe pain in fingers. Rash developed on elbows that does not respond to medication. Pain in feet and lower legs, especially in the morning after waking up.
I also suffer from red, hot swollen hands and feet. The veins in my hands have become very prominent recently too - does anyone else have that problem? Heavenlybird, you suggested it could be associated with diet, which could be a strong possibility. Out of interest, have you or anyone you know tried the Anti Candida diet and found any positive results? I will try anything, as red hand and feet thing is a right pain in the butt!
Thanks alo for posting. Its so frustrating, I've posted in so many places and no one seems to answer. RSD is pretty much almost the same thing as Fibro, but it does cause swelling, and it spreads. Its caused by trauma, in my case surgery, from what I've read it is very similar and most who get RSD end up also getting Fibro for some reason.
However, for a long time, my weird sensory/neuropathy-like symptoms were agitated by heat. I eventually had tingling in my face, hands, feet constantly. But the heat would make it go "nuts." So, getting into a hot car in the summer would almost instantly cause any tingling to enhance. If my whole body got hot (exercise or in a hot environment) than all of my tingling would get worse.
I woke to really swollen hands and feet, I know I have heard this could be an issue but I forget why?
