I have a question for all you lovely peeps…
Have any of you experienced swelling in on foot only? My right foot has been quite significantly swollen from the ankle to the toes for quite a while now. This is the same leg with which I have lots of problems, eg: tingling, numbess, heaviness, weakness etc, and I am wondering if this is connected. I have noticed that this ankle and foot and lower leg are now feeling increasingly stiff and ‘wooden’, too.
My left foot does swell to a lesser degree when I have been on my feet for about 30 mins or more (not very often these days!) but this soon goes down but my right one just seems to be constanty swollen. I do have a couple of pockets of fluid on my left ankle, but I have put that down to a bad sprain last year.
I was wondering if it was the heat, but then I would assume that both feet would swell more or less the same, and that it would go down when I put them up. The right one doesn’t go down regardless of how long I sit with it up.
Is this something I should go and see my ever-so approachable and open-minded GP about??!!
