I am 64 years old patient on anti-hypertension medication and also on Statins. The other day I flew for about 5 hours (2 1/2 hrs each way) and at the end of the day both my feet had swollen. The swelling got considerably reduced the next day. However, I got my blood tested to rule out kidney and lever (as I am on Statins) implications. All the numbers were within the range. I walk almost every day for about an hour and cover a little over four miles. My doctor told me that it is a problem connected with reduced circulation of blood due to age. The edema is now fully gone.
Any person with such an experience? Would topical applications help?
