  • NEW YORK PODIATRIST DISCUSSES COMMON CAUSES OF TRANSIENT SWOLLEN FEET

 

 

 

When your feet are so damn swollen it hurts to even put your shoes on, that feeling of panic (and the urge to Google your symptoms) might kick in. Seriously, is going on? The good news is that, in most cases, it's nothing serious. Jacqueline Sutera, DPM, a doctor of podiatric medicine and spokesperson for the American Podiatric Medical Association, explains a common reason why your feet might look and feel more balloonish than usual and offers tips on how to treat the swelling.

If you've been traipsing around all day, your busy schedule might be the culprit. A long day of standing or walking can lead to swelling in your lower extremities, says Dr. Sutera. Take regular rest breaks to give those puppies a breather, and keep them elevated, ideally above the height of your heart to get your circulation flowing again. The good news: The swelling should go away overnight while you’re sleeping, says Sutera.
