Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, after long walking or standing feet become swell up so nothing to worry . keep your leg above the leval of heart when you sit , swelling subsided. it happens in case of hypothyroidism n high blood pressure so you should get bloob test for thyroid profile n monitor your blood pressure. consult your doc if you find hyothyroidism or high BP, otherwise nothing to bother.
