    Is anyone else suffering with really swollen painfull feet.

    Im currently having to wear my cheaper version of ugg boots as they are the only wide comfy even though they are scruffy boots which I can get on my feet.

    Its not so much the swelling even though it looks like I have hobbit feet its the fact they are painfull and sore to touch.

    Anyone else suffering?

    Yup, and legs and hands! :-( keep an eye on it though. High bp and swollen feet etc can be a sign of pre eclampsia.xx

    I've got swollen feet not too bad but skin feels so tight and socks really r digging in. Luckily my work shoes have been dolly shoes which are stretched so feet still fit in them but when they get bigger it's a good excuse for new shoes :)

    Yeah feet and hands too, Iv been wearing scruffy uggs to work for the past few months lol

    BP been ok but on the up the last few, Still on the safe side though but have a feeling ti might be higher on tuesday, I was told hands and feet can be normal but to keep an eye out for your face swelling and excessive swelling in wrists and hands like more than just normal chunky fingers

    Flight socks can help somewhat. Mine are swollen but not painful, but back when I was still at work they really hurt and the socks helped. They help stop you getting the dreaded varicose veins too.
