  • Drink lots of water, You may be retaining fluid. You may want to see your dr. about a water pill if it is really bad.

  • It is the only answer. Elevate your feet above heart level. Get your blood pressure checked and watch your salt intake. Drink water and if they don't go down call your physician. I get this if I'm on my feet too long.
