    I use compression socks because I swell when taking my daily walks. They help immensely look for 20-30 mmHg for during pregnancy.

  • thanks so much ill definitly look into that and for sure try to find time after work to prop my feet up 
  • Prop up your feet, drink plenty of water and cut back on any excessive salt/sodium intake. Compression socks can help too. If it's concerning, talk to your Dr./MW, but I suspect if it's that bad, they've already noticed and are watching it as well.

  • Acupuncture.  One session with a knowledgable practitioner should take it away within 24 hours.  And it will not come back.
