Thread: Foot swelling

    Foot swelling

    A friend posted this on CareCure's FB page, please advise.

    So Robbies foot has been swelling for no reason. It happened last week, we thought he injured it but the next day it was back to normal. Now today it blew up again. Just one foot. Should I be worried? This is new to us.

    Hello
    Any history of blood clots? any recent trauma to the foot? If he injured it it could be a sprain or a fracture if he has no feeling in foot he may not know
    A good idea to get to provider to get pulses in foot checked rule out blood clot and get an xray rule out fracture

    Salt + not enough hydration + hot weather. OR constipation (left foot?)
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Hello friends, thanks so much for the helpful info. No change in color, have ruled out injury, YES only left foot, could be constipation. Didn't know that was a sign...so helpful as usual!

    Robbie has a vascular condition so clots and bleeds are always a concern. Will get this checked, thank you.

    These days - it's either dairy or sugar (I'm in denial) in ice cream that is making my feet swell as well. I refuse to give up my Ben & Jerry's addiction. REFUSE. lol

    That Ben & Jerry is great! I can eat that until I blow up. My dog likes it as well.

    Been wondering how you guys are! Sorry you are dealing with an oddity. We had something come up this morning too and I jumped on looking for info before the trip to the doctor.
