Typically, swollen feet are caused by abnormal buildup of fluid in the ankles, feet and legs is called peripheral edema. Swelling is common with prolonged standing or sitting in long airplane flights or automobile rides. RECOMMENDATIONS: Avoid sitting or standing without moving for prolonged periods of time. When flying, stretch your legs often and get up to walk when possible. When driving, stop to stretch and walk every hour or so. Avoid wearing restrictive clothing or garters around your thighs. Wear support socks or stockings that can provide pressure to help pump fluid and reduce swelling. Mild swelling is often managed with 15-20 mmHg compression. Moderate and severe swelling may require higher compression. Please consult with your physician.
