I have this problem since 3 or 4 months ago. I went to see two doctors. One said that I only needed to walk daily for 30 minutes and the swollen will go away by itself. How can I walk if my feet hurts??
The other doctor gave me clortalidona and it is working !! but he just took away the symthom... what about the cause?? Forgot to say that I am a 67 year old woman, 5'2" and my weigh is 155 but with the water pill I am weighing 150 pounds now. I look like if I had around 52 years, so my husband say, and this is the first time I have this problem besides the pregnancies long time ago... Thank you for any help you can give me. God bless. :confused:
