hi, sir ... there appear to be a couple of issues with you, which i feel are not interrelated,
2.swollen feet, and circulation problems.
spasticity of muscles could be due to localized cramps, as well as a disease known as myotonia... i think you ought to ask the neurologist who assesed you the exact diagnosis he arrived at after evaluating you.. because myotonia could have myriad causes also you can check your electrolyte levels, sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate and calcium, cause any electrolyte imbalance too may cause the feeling of tightness
if the feeling of spasticity is confined to your back... you shaould also get a thoraco-lumbar x-ray/ MRI spine just to rule out any disease in the spine and vertebral column..
for your other problem..swollen feet with evidently circulation problems, just see whether the feet are swollen the whole day or only towards evening, if it is the latter it could be cardiac disease.
in that case you will need a complete cardiac evaluation... ecg, chest x-ray, echocardiogram.
if the swollen feet are associated with prominent veins, it suggests a likelihood of varicose veins, for which the best treatment is surgical removal of the veins.
finally if the swollen feet aredue to lymphedema you may need to take a course of DEC an antifilarial drug for 2 weeks...
as you can see sir i have not still narrowed it down to just one diagnosis, so you should meet a surgeon , who is aspecialist in diagnosing varicose veins and lymphedema.
