OFTEN SWOLLEN FEET
I started noticing it in 1996 and many doctors I have seen until last year associated it to my allergy. However, because it does not become better and it is very inonveniencing when I want to wear and buy shoes I decided to see family physicians; one ordered liver and kidney tests and he found out that nothing was wrong with both organs and he said it could be circulation or water retention and prescribed an anti-diuretic. the other said it is homorne imbalance I went to a gynea who ordere hormone tests and he found out nothing is wrong with my hormones. There is history of swollen feet in my family and I am a bit overweight. What could be my problem.
