Common Questions and Answers about Swollen feet in summer


Avatar f tn I'm 6 months pregnant, is it normal to have swollen feet already? I am on my feet a lot and it's very hot where I am. Not sure if that matters?
Avatar f tn Hi ladies im 32 weeks and my feet got a lil swollen. One is more swollen than the other lol. Normally yes im tored my feet hurt aince i stand all day at work but once im up im ok i can handle it. I have a lot of energy. Yesterday i had a small baby shower just friends and i was walking around ALL day today i clean ALL day and now it hurts to even walk. My feet are killing me i feel like i cant even put pressure on them so i walk as if i have needles sticking out :/.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn It's been so hot here as its summer and have been getting swollen feet lots! I'm 24+3 at the moment. Drink water, keep your feet up when you can during the day, have some time at night to put your feet higher up, I use a hot water bottle by my feet at night that has been in the freezer all day it's amazing! Look into some Yoga stretching for your feet/ankles too that helps!
Avatar f tn I have 2 days to go before im due to have my son and my feet are swollen. Is it a sign of labour or something else?
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn I am 31 weeks and for a good month or so my feet have been swollen and I cant wear sneakers. Its driving me loca. With my first I didn't really experience this much because he was born in June. My 2nd is due in November. I so dislike being pregnant during the summer.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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??
8526246 tn?1405605476 With it being summer and so warm swelling is very common. Its already common in pregnancy but when its warmer it makes it worse. Be sure to drink lots of water. If you are really concerned it wouldn't hurt to call. The worst they can say is its fine.
461781 tn?1285613081 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!!
Avatar f tn I did with my last two children they were summer babies which was good because I couldn't wear any shoes besides flip flops I'm due in Feb now so we shall see how it goes lol
Avatar f tn When i was pregnant with my 1st daugther it was in the summer and my feet and my ankles looks like an elephant...i couldn't wear my wedding ring ever... that is what happen to me but if you are really worried check with your Gp.
Avatar f tn 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!
378557 tn?1233252992 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.
Avatar f tn I no exactly what your feeling I'm always feeling so hot plus the summer weather doesn't help.
465737 tn?1315758522 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!
1186413 tn?1326734149 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.
Avatar f tn Was eating dinner and realized that my sock was cutting into my foot on one side. Took it off and was surprised to see my feet swollen. Don't know if it was swollen throughout the day and I just didn't notice it or it came on quickly after i put on the socks.... i know swelling is common during pregnancy but also read that sudden swelling could be a sign of blood clots..... anyone been in this situation?
624083 tn?1369317863 I've been freaking out about how much my feet have gotten swollen these past few days, its terrible!
287246 tn?1318573663 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
991222 tn?1333994333 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.
Avatar f tn No crisfigg, you're not lol I picture myself in a kiddiepool in the shade, cool drink in one hand and good book in the other... I can think of plenty for pros of summer pregnancy/babies: - We can walk around (half) naked, without freezing our *** off: more comfy ánd cheaper maternity wardrobe! - We also get to walk around barefoot/ with slippers/open sandals without freezing our toes off. - Vit D from the sun is very good for our babies.
Avatar f tn They disappear in about a day but then more come back. In addition, every once in awhile, one of my toes will get red, a little bit swollen, warm to the touch, and kinda painful (dull ache-y pain [twice it got just painful enough to where it kept me up almost all night]). This has been going on for about 2-3 weeks, and I haven't been able to figure out what it is! I'm not physically active - as it's summer - so it shouldn't be anything related to that.
1278093 tn?1294323984 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!
Avatar f tn 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.
