Thanks for your question. I have reviewed your history & symptoms in detail and come to the conclusion that there are few important possibilities which should be investigated and these are liver disorders, renal (kidney diseases), cardiac manifestations, blood flow obstruction in legs. The importatnt possibilities which I mentioned all can cause such kind of swelling of feet and legs. This is essential to have tests for that at the earliest such as liver function tests, serum urea, EKGs, doppler scan, complete blood count. I will advise you to visit ER or see your primary care physician for early examination because these symptoms cannot be ta***** *****ghtly. Best wishes.

Do ACCEPT the answer if you find it useful in this way I will be rewarded for my work and time here for you. Clicking accept will not cost you anything.

Best of luck and keep in touch

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
