Kindly do the color doppler study for both lower extremities to rule out varicose veins or any other obstruction in the blood vessels of lower extremities.
Also get the X-Ray of the affected part.
Till then you can use
T.Gokshuradi guggul 1 tab thrice a day

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum

Swelling on one foot can be due to following causes-
Arthritis or gout , which is an ailment related to the joint.
Cellulitis- which is infection of the skin.
Blockage in the vein- ( deep vein thrombosis).

Certain investigations are required to rule out gout, RA. And color doppler study of the affected leg to see it there is a block.

Once the cause is known treatment can be decided accordingly.

For RA/ gout you can take homeopathy safely , and for permanent result.

Meanwhile keepling leg slightly elevated, gently massage by any oil, giving leg rest and moderate acitivity, avoiding prolonged standing is adviced.

Your age is one of the factor for swelling of legs.

Second TABLET AMLOKAND AT which contain amlodipine. This drug is calcium channel blocker and these drug known to cause leg/foot swelling due to peripheral pooling of blood by dilating your veins.

Third systemic disease such as congestive failure, diabetes, gout.

Therefore you require blood investigation as well as x-ray to see local cause.

I have search that tablet ZIPTAN contain zolmitriptan. It is tablet for migraine/severe headache. It is not approve to use in swelling of foot.

welcome to HCM,

with the history of single foot swelling, no pain, chronic for more than 1yr -all pointing towards possibility of 'stasis edema' either due to venous incompetence or prolonged standing. Evaluate once again with a physician.

Female, 37, 5 ft 5 about 170 lbs. Medical History. I smoke about 10 cigarettes a day, have never done recreational drugs and only drink occasionally. 4 months ago I passed 3 kidney stones. I gave birth to 3 children and had 3 late term miscarriages (4 to 6 mo along). 2 of my children I had to have progesterone shots in order to carry them to term. After the last one I had severe bleeding issues for over a year causing me to have a partial hysterectomy, I still have my overies. 4 years ago I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and have been on and off medication since, at times it would be under control without medication. For 2 years now I have continually been told that I have a high red blood count and have had to undergo a phlembotomy several times because of it. I currently have high blood pressure, sometimes as high as 190/140 or so. I have a head ache almost all the time. I have noticed times that my heart seems to beat very very hard or flutter for short times and it causes tension in my chest. Different doctors have run so many tests and can t tell me why any of this happens. They don t know what has caused the high red count. I also have leg pain and swelling which worsens in cold weather and it doesn t really change with activity or rest, they feel very heavy at times. Most doctors dismiss this. I am constantly being asked if I have a sunburn even though I don t. I sweat horribly bad very often even from the slightest activity such as vacuuming in a 70 degree house. I am constantly tired no matter how much sleep I get. I have been diagnosed with minor sleep apnea but the machine doesn t seem to help me. I deal with months of diarrhea and then turn around and am severely constipated for a couple weeks. I have an increasing amount of facial hair growth that the doctors also dismiss, where I pluck about 200 hairs a week. They all tell me that my hormone levels are normal although I question that. I have gone through all of this with 3 different doctors now and get no where, I end up getting frustrated and stop going and then end up running out of my blood pressure medicine for months at a time until I finally decide to give another doctor a try. I am lost of what to do since no one can tell me what is wrong.
