You don't give your age or any other details but swollen feet can indicate a number of different conditions, some of which are serious. My advice is to see your doctor. (06/20/2005)
Too much salt (sodium) in your diet and not enough water could do it. Hate to say it but more serious problems would cause it too. I agree with the other folks, see a physician if you decrease your salt and increase the water and that doesn't help.
Sometimes peoples feet and ankles swell from the heat or sitting too long. I used to get swollen ankles some when sitting too long. Then I had my legs swelling when we took a very long flight and had delays and such. I saw my Dr. and he said I was retaining fluid so I take a water pill. I also take something for high pulse and high blood pressure. I don't seem to ever have the problem anymore but I try not to sit too long at a time at the computer and have my legs dangling. Your best bet is to see the Dr. and hopefully you have by now! (09/02/2006)
