Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, it appears to be edema of the lower limbs. Should you not have any other specific symptoms apart from pain in the limbs, you can meet up a nephrologist at the earliest for further clinical assessment. Just make sure to take a heart healthy, balanced & anti-inflammatory diet, preferably Mediterranean. Try adding leafy greens, beans, pumpkin, grapes, watermelon, banana, beets, pineapple, garlic etc all to your diet. Restrict salt intake and foods that are processed, greasy, fatty, oily and also fast foods etc all. Follow dietary instructions as recommended by your doc specifically. If you require to stand or sit for a long time, do take frequent breaks, move around a little as convenient. At the same time, while sleeping, keep a pillow underneath your feet which shall help subside the swelling. You may also have to have a cardiology/ pulmonology opinion too, which your doc will suitably refer should it require. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.
