Swelling feet, ankles anyone else experience this

21 posts in this topic

Sharon,

 

I had hand and feet swelling early on. It felt like my feet were on fire. I even thought I would have to go to a bigger shoe size. I couldn't shake hands with anyone because I would cringe from the pain. I noticed the swelling was worse when I was physically active. If you can, take a break and put your legs up for a while.

 

Hope your doctor was able to make a good recommendation.

 

Hugs,

Razz

Hi Sharon,

 

I also have the hand and feet swelling. It usually starts bothering me in the evening. The swelling isn't very noticable (at least to me), but when they get like that, even socks hurt my feet. I have to cut the little thread of elastic at the top because it feels like it's cutting off my circulation. I end up taking off the socks because my feet burn so bad it feels like I'm walking on ridges. My hands don't get quite so bad. I do like Razz and prop my feet up for a while.

I would dearly love to pop my feet up but tis a little hard with a three year old lol tis almost impossible. It is usually 8pm before I even think about me. Aw well will make an effort though to try as it is getting harder and harder to get through the day as the pain is getting worse.


Kindest Regards

Update on swelling.

 

Well it continues to worsen with the level of pain being quite bad. I now end up in tears by the time night has come. An hour of shopping is too much for them to bear leaving me very dependent on my hubby. I hate this disease and what it robs you of .


Kindest Regards

Sharon,

 

So sorry you are still feeling ill and worse. Please give your Doctor a call for some help. They might have a suggestion which will ease some of the pain for you.

 

It is a terrible disease and for some reason the pain can be just so awful. Keep your feet up as much as you can to see if the swelling goes down. Sometimes if the swelling goes down the pain decreases too. Put your favorite music on and sit a nice comfy chair.

 

With gentle thoughts.

Sharon,

 

I too have swelling feet & hands. I take hydrochlorothiazide 25mg daily helps some but doesn't take care of the pain. I've gone up a shoe size and width.

Mine is from the sclero.

 

It started in the hot & humid weather but now is year around.

 

Keep your doctor posted so maybe they will be able to find help for you.
