swollen feet

The weather is getting warm and my feet are swelling, usually humidity will do this but its not humid yet. Can LC have an affect on this? I have to watch my salt.

It happens to me but only when I've walked too long or sat too long.

I never used to get swollen feet, but as I've gotten older I've had them. Low carb does make a difference for me. I've been back on plan a few weeks now and they haven't swollen yet. I'll be taking a road trip soon and they usually get bad then, I'll have to see how it goes this time.

I wonder if its age. Yesterday I spent mostly on my feet, 2 1/2 of tennis,then 4 hours of shopping with my sister and niece. When I went to bed last night, I could visibly see the top of my left foot swollen, but no pain. Honestly, I used to do all this activity X's 2, so I'm blaming it on old age

I also take metropolol for high blood pressure and I'm thinking this may have something to do with along with age, sitting and weather

Weezer, I would consult your physician. Swelling in the feet does not appear to be a side effect of that med, though it could be. At any rate, it's not something that you want to have a lot of.

Swollen feet and ankles is a common side effect of another BP med called Norvasc (Amlodipine), which is a calcium channel blocker. According to WebMD, fluid retention in the feet, legs, arms and hands is a rare side effect of metoprolol. So, while it isn't common, that might explain it.
