Thank you for the quick reply.
The symptoms you have described of having overheat feeling,swelling in legs,ankle & feet since last 4 months is most likely due to your diabetes. Other less probable cause are:prolonged standing,long journeys,increased age,venous insufficiency,varicose veins,certain medications.Edema foot(swelling in foot) can also be due to heart failure, kidney failure, or liver failure.
You need following tests:
-Liver function tests(LFT)
-Kidney function test(KFT)
-Cardiac function test(CFT)
-Complete urine examination.
-Serum albumin & globulin levels.
Following is recommended for you:
· Try to take a short walk every hour
· Avoid excess fluid intake.It usually helps.
· A low dose of a diuretic (water pill) may be prescribed accordingly.
· Elevation of leg & applying ice will relieve your symptoms of swelling.
All this will help you greatly in reducing the swelling & this may take a few days time.
If still after this,the symptoms of swelling persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatments & there does not seem to be anything serious or dangerous here.
Hope this helped
