Apologies for the photo of my feet I’m just a bit worried about this and not sure what to do, this started yesterday and I thought they felt a bit uncomfortable throughout the day. I am working from home and did my usual of taking breaks and making sure I am walking around as well as eating healthy and making sure I am hydrated. As the day went on it was getting worse until I went to bed and found my lower limbs the most swollen they’ve been in a long time. I’ve tried elevating them as well as massage and nothing seems to work... is this something I should be worried about or just keep an eye on?
Usually for my feet to be swollen I have to be on my feet a lot but this was the same as any other day and they have flared up massively, went to bed with them elevated and this morning they aren’t as bad but the pain hasn’t really gone down. I thought maybe it was just a one off but looks like a flare up...
I take tramadol to control my joint pains and have over the counter ibuprofen gel. Do you think it is worth calling the doctor yet or waiting to see if it continues, I can’t take naproxen like I used to due to stomach issues so gel application is the only way I’ve been able to use anti inflammatory meds.
Any advice would be really appreciated!
