Posted by liz

this is the 2nd time in 3 months that my legs have been swollen.  the first time was on a car ride for about 13 hours.  i did get out of the car a couple of times but not for very long.....  the 2nd time was a week ago.  i was on a plane for 3 hrs.  only walked a little to the luggage.  the swelling lasted about 10 hrs.  the 3rd time was last nite after walking down up and down a main street browsing in windows.  i have been trying to drink a lot of water and eliminate salt.  what else can i do?  i am out of town and not near my regular dr.
