My daughter has quite drinking and has muscle pain in legs and feet or swollen. She fell in the beginning of detox and that foot is more swollen. Had xrays nothing broke or sprang. Dr. said it is normal. But it has been 2 weeks and legs ache and feet are still swollen. Is this normal and how long should she wait until she sees a doctor. Also, any remedies?

Thanks for your query.

Your daughter has history of trauma and swelling of feet since two weeks. You mentioned she has normal Xrays.

She could be suffering from ligament or tendon injury(orthopedic is necessary. Perhaps MRI or USG of affected part is entailed.

Mean while try anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen.
Maintain feet elevation at night time and 2-4 hrs in daytime.
Use Hot fomentation (compressses three times a day)

Hope you got the answer to your queries. I will be happy to answer further queries.

Take care.
