Hello
What is your question?
Swollen feet and legs should take you right to your doctor.
This can be
bad veins
thyroid disease
liver disease
kidney disease
bad lymph vessels.
You need an ultrasound of the legs to start, as you are more prone to clots, and the ultrasound will show if you have bed veins.
Liver problems can make piles worse.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
