Thanks for your question.
You seem to be developing bilateral pedal edema which is indicative of fluid retention as you have mentioned in your question.
This needs to be investigated as it can have different underlying reasons.
Major causes of fluid retention in this manner include kidney dysfunction, inability of heart to pump blood efficiently, anaemia that is decreased hemoglobin and decreased protein especially albumin in the body.
You need to have blood test for kidney function and liver function, echocardiography and ECG to look at Heart function and blood counts.
Meanwhile medicines which are able to induce fluid loss through urine known as diuretics can be used.
You need to see your doctor to have yourself evaluated as mentioned above in my answer.
Feel free to ask any follow up questions.
Do take a moment to honour my work and time by rating my answer hopefully 5 stars.

As I have not received any answer from you, I will go ahead with my answer.
There are no over the counter drugs you can take for the condition.
Diuretics like hydrochlorothiazide or chlorthalidone can be considered if you have them handy.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
