I’m swelling and it won’t stop! I knew it was going to happen eventually, and since it is suppose to be 118 degrees outside this week I suppose now is a better time than ever! Its so weird to see your little toes change into little sausages but that’s not really the worst part, your feet feel physically hot which is a little uncomfortable when it’s hot here already. But I would like to try and look at the positive and since my shoes aren’t really fitting anymore any excuse to go shoe shopping I’m taking! So I went out and bought some cute little sandals, a little pricey but worth every penny 🙂
I was curious on how to shrink down these elephant feet so I looked to my friend Google and found some solutions. I provided them below. These suggestions are just for mild causes of swelling please remember that swelling can become life threatening so don’t wait till it’s too late to see a doctor)
1) Try to avoid salty foods
2) Make sure you drink plenty of water
3) Elevate your feet above your heart
4) Try to avoid crossing your legs while sitting
5) Try moving around to increase circulation
What did you do when your feet started to swell?
