Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I already reviewed the attached report.
The symptoms seem to be related to peripheral neuropathy.
The most common cause is diabetes.
I recommend to do some examinations to confirm the diagnosis.
A glycemic level
A glycated hemoglobin level to exclude diabetes
Regular measurement of the blood pressure.
Meanwhile, I suggest using anti-inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three tablets a day.
I also recommend to continue taking diuretics in the morning to relieve the swelling and edema.
After the examination you can contact me again for further evaluation.
Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
