Swollen feet and ankles are normally a result of standing or walking for long periods. Often times the swelling will subside after being off your feet for a while. In other cases people experience consistent frustrations with swollen feet and ankles. If you are constantly suffering from swollen feet it may be a sign of more serious health conditions. Swelling of the foot and ankle is also referred to as peripheral edema, which is a buildup of fluid around the foot and ankle. The fluid itself is harmless and typically does not cause pain. The swelling on the other hand can be uncomfortable and hinder your range of motion while preventing the ability to walk comfortably.
