    I haven't experienced this yet but I know it must be coming soon because my hands are starting to swell up at odd times. :hugs::hugs: for you! I read drinking more water and fluids could help with swelling. I'm not sure if this is true but it may be worth a shot!

    I've had one swollen ankle today and yesterday, but that's because I hit it on the side of the truck when I was getting in. It's hurting like heck to walk and stand on it though. But no, my feet and ankles just feel swollen when I've been standing for too long (walking isn't even as bad as standing).

    Mine are starting to. The last few days I've really noticed a line getting made round my ankles by my socks, which is not attractive, and it can get quite bad if I've stood up or walked about for too long. I just go and lie in the bath for an hour or so with a book, and they seem to sort themselves out!
