Were you sitting for long hours without any movement?

and i also take cobodex
Are you not able to wear the footwear?
no that is what is worrying me doctor
Ok, did you ever had similar problem in the pst?
i use when i travel but not so badly
With the explanation, this is called bilateral pedal edema. This is generally seen in various conditions
1) Prolonged sitting without movements
2) Health conditions like low Hemoglobin
Though there are other conditions which are serious, they do not apply to you. THe bove conditions may apply
So best thing is to keep your legs elevated all the time whenever you sit and sleep
on a stool, three pills at the level of knee while sleeping
this will produce over night results
Second you need to check if the thyroid, Hb and protein levels
Actually the swollen legs are because of the fluid coming out of the vessels into the spaces in between the cells
All the above conditions will cause this
today i went atlist more than 20 time to Urine
Did you take any tablet for thiss?
Immediately you can keep the legs elevated than your upper body
Wear a stockings while at work will help
Getting tested is important
So I suggest to visit a General Physician

Thyroid testin, Hemoglobin, Urine protein, Serum protein, Liver function tests
