My feet, ankles and legs swell for a week retaining up to 20 lb. of fluid. The pain is unbearable. The swelling lasts a week with another week to go down. It's painful to walk or even touch. When the swelling is going down using fluid pills, my feet throb and hurt terribly. After the fluid goes away every part of my legs ankles and feet are untouchable. It's hard to sleep, stand or sit, nothing can touch. Afterwards the cycle starts all over again. I've had so many tests, scans and sonograms but nothing shows up. I know this is not normal and it's continuously getting worse. I need answers. I've had MRI, CT, sonograms, etc., but no answers.

Since I started taking amlodipine I notice swelling in both my ankles, but mostly my left ankle.

I am a caregiver. I stand on my feet all day. When I have taken my blood pressure tablet my feet feel very painful.

I have a problem with swollen feet every evening when I get back home after my work. It has happened since 6 November 2015 when I had a little injury after a small accident. The doctor told me the tissues are damaged and these will be all right after some time but still these are not. I am diabetic also.
