    See a doctor. Sounds like heart issues.

    Was told by a pharmacist to keep them elevated at night...doesnt seem to help...so it could be dangerous??? Dr. Google (lol) said Arthritus...(spelling??)

    make sure you drink plenty of water...if you cant drink enuff water, maybe try getting some water pills.  soaking them in cold water could help too.

     That could be just about anything.  I had friend that had diabetes and his legs used to swell all the time.  My dh had a co-worker that has gout and her feet swell when she doesn't eat right.  Seriously that could be anything.  See a doctor.

    You need to find out what is going on. It could be heart, kidney.  Good luck! Please let us know what you find out.

    If it hurts go to the er ASAP. Could be a blood clot. I've had one and it was very painful.
