got up this morning and my feet were swollen. The left is so swollen I can barely get a shoe on anything I can do at home for this?

I want to thank all of you for your help and input. At this point my feet are slightly swollen still dr is determining whether a water pill is in order.

Get your feet raised to a level above your heart. Just propping them up on a footstool won't cut it.
Lay off the salt.

I am also dealing with the lovely swelling of the feet though my legs are too now. I look like omg just awful. I got a little Lasix from my MD the other day but still not helping. I do think I am having something more serious going on though. Anyhow another thought…I dunno if you use salt or drink soda…just chill on those for now cause I do know they can make you swell up. Good luck though! *Hugs* Sheila

the best thing for at home is keep them elevated as much as possible when sleeping at night have more pillows under feet then your head.. if doesn't come down get to a dr.

Hi LarryZ,
Don"t mess around with the swelling in your feet. Both of mine swelled so much that I had to go barefoot for about two weeks. I wound up in the hospital with gout.Go to your doctor as soon as you can. You might have something else.Just don't mess around too long.
