Swelling of hands and feet
Dear Doc

I experience swelling of my hands and feet - especially during summer time. It is also worse during the night to the degree that my skin shines and tightens.
Should I be concerned? Sometimes I wake up inthe night with a tingly sensation in them.

Dina, it’s probably nothing, but it might be due to heart or kidney problems or even liver problems. The best would be to see your doctor just to make sure. Good luck.
