Causes Swollen Feet Only During The Day?
It’s been more than 1 week my mother’s legs are swollen strangely only during the daytime, when I wake up, my feet aren’t swollen, why?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Swollen feet can occur due to various things, including:
Sit or stand for long periods
Abnormalities in kidney organs
Abnormalities in the liver
Disorders of the lymph vessels
Drug side effects
In the case of your mother, swollen feet only during the daytime and not in the morning, may occur due to her daily activities. If he is too often sitting or standing, especially if coupled with blood vessels that are experiencing certain abnormalities and gravitational forces, then there can be a buildup of fluid in the lower body that is the origin of the swelling. But at night and he sleeps, the supine body position makes the distribution of fluid back to normal so that in the morning, his legs return to normal. However, this is only a possibility and still has to be proven with a history and direct examination.
We suggest that you check your mother with the doctor for internal medicine related to her complaint, so that a history can be carried out, a physical examination and, if necessary, a supporting examination to make possible conditions and determine the best treatment. Meanwhile, try to maintain ideal body weight, compress swollen feet with ice cubes wrapped in a towel, reduce salt intake, avoid too much standing or sitting, do light exercise that moves the feet, and lie down while lifting the legs up when swelling occurs. Do not take any medicine without doctor's advice. So, hopefully answering your question.
