  • I seen a foot doctor several time for my feet and sadly not much can be done but soak them,massage them and wear when you can good shoes like rykas,which make many styles.
    Best of luck..

  • Elevate your feet as much as possible. I had the same problem with my first and I also did not have pre eclampsia. (until the very end) I had to wear vans because regular shoes were too small...even the wide ones. I had bad swelling everywhere no matter how much or how little water I drank. I litterally had kankles because you couldnt see them. They were as big as my calves. Good news was that I lost 25lbs in the hospital alone because of water weight. Most women only lose 15. LOL gotta stay positive. I would rest and elevate every chance you get.

  • Do you have Diabetes? Someof the sympthoms sound like it. Check it with the doctor.

    I hope you feel better.
