    I don't think massaging makes it worse, but it hasn't helped my swelling go down. The best thing to do is lie down with your foot up so that it's higher than your heart. My feet are so swollen that I can press my thumb down into them and make a dent. I'm living in flip flops!!

    Someone said to me if you get swollen feet put socks into cold water then ring them out and then put them on resting on a towel and it helps calm them down not sure how true as I not had this problem. Also think keeping feet raised up where possible x
