  • Where is the swelling? Try to put your feet up for a while if you can. Even if only for a short while. Hang in there you're so close!

  • Elevate your feet, place them in an ice bath for a little while. Avoid salt.

  • If it's sudden then you should call the doc. It could be a sign of something more serious. Swelling in the hands, feet, and face are always asked about in the last month or so. Just let them know and see what they say.

  • Stay away from salt, drink water... if it doesn't start to go away, I would call your doctor... it could be a reaction to something.
