Please help, I am miserable!

I sprained my right ankle twice within four months when I was 16. So during the winter, it swells and aches. I am 32 weeks pregnant and both feet are swollen but the right one is even more swollen and throbbing, so is my pinky toe on my right foot. My right ankle and pinky toe have never throbbed before, I am 24.

For years I wrap my right ankle and also soak it in Epsom salt but those are making it even worse!

Please tell me what I can try, I can't limp until he decides to come out. Plus my maternity leave doesn't start until March 20th! Thanks so much for taking a moment to help me if you got any suggestions.

i'd call your doc--the swelling could be a potential complication

I would call your doc, but maybe try icing it and elevating it above your heart. Hope it feels better!

Call dr and see if you can't get a massage. I work at a massage place and massage helps swelling/inflammation and reducing the pain.

I would try seeing a physiotherapist. Acupuncture or massage could be beneficial.

I just called they told me to come in to make sure I don't have a blood clot in my leg. I am high risk with a history of blood clots in my lungs and SO is being such a jerk! He sees me crying and won't take me to the hospital! I had to call my boss and she's on her way to get me, thanks ladies. I think I need to put him out!
