When your feet are so swollen it hurts to even put your shoes on, that feeling of panic might kick in. The good news is that in most cases, it's nothing serious. Podiatrist Dr. Jacqueline Sutera explains common reasons 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 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 is that the swelling should go away overnight while you’re sleeping, says Sutera. Wearing tight shoes or gaining weight (especially during pregnancy) can also cause swelling.
If both of your feet remain swollen, however, you could have a circulation disorder such as varicose veins, a venous insufficiency — your veins aren’t bringing blood back to your heart, so it pools in your legs— or rarely, a blood clot, says Sutera. Make an appointment with your doctor if your swelling doesn't seem to be related to any of the above factors.
