From my knee down to and including my feet will become swollen.

This answer was rated:

From my knee down to and including my feet will become swollen. my legs swell very badly . I also get watery blisters and scabs on them. Luckily it didn't become infected this time and leave more scars. I also get lumps on my legs from the knee downwards. I am disabled and have problems with my body, lower back pain, pain in, my legs and hips. I hope you have some idea of what is going on. I do not sit all day and when I do sit down I always put my legs up. Thank you.

Most typically this would be bad veins in the legs.
It causes all of these symptoms.
You need a doppler ultrasound study of the legs.
Other possible causes:
heart problems.
kidney problems.
thyroid problems.
liver problems.
The first step is exam and ultrasound.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
