sit at desk/computer for 8 hrs. type of work
This swelling started happening a couple of months ago, along with some other symptoms that indicated i was not taking good care of myself. I've quit drinking, smoking, eating healthy/vegan, began exercising, reduced my sodium, ....you name it, i've done it. The swelling completely disappeared and only reappeared 3 to 4 days ago. Nothing has changed in terms of my healthy choices. The first day I noticed it was a VERY stressful, upsetting day, thought it might have been high blood pressure or something......but just that day, no stress since, and the swelling has not subsided. The swelling begins at my ankle, and it is severe.....my foot looks deformed. You can't even see my ankle bones. But no pain, fever, swelling anywhere else.....
