Swollen feet

Everytime I have visited Thailand (actually only 2 times but anyway ...) I have noticed that after one day my feet and ancles are swollen and stays that way during the whole stay. Has anyone else experienced the same problem? My feet does not hurt but it annoyes me, and last time I did a lot of walking etc to get it away but nothing helps! ......... Is there anything to do?

Could be too much msg, that makes your feet swell
They use it a lot in cooking here so it is not easy to avoid.

I find it is the flight that brings it on. Goes away after a couple of weeks back home.

Sounds like it could be a deep vein thrombosis, blood clot, in the leg. Long flights can induce these. This is a very dangerous and life threating condition because if the clot breaks free and moves upward it can cause a heart attack or stroke. See a doctor immediately to get a diagnosis.

I always wear compression socks on flights. Maybe try that the next time.

As far as I'm aware, if it's a blood clot there's usually a lot of redness and tenderness to a particular area, but as the OP says it always happens and stays that way the whole holiday (assuming it's ok after he's back home) I think it's more likely to be a combination of heat & immobility. Better safe than sorry though, if you're worried about it.

So do I, but finding ones big enough for the "old man" is difficult.

I had a blood clot. My foot and ankle swelled but no redness. The doctor had me on aspirin for 3 weeks with the leg raised and very little activity. Went away very slowly.

That's scary. How do they know it's a clot? Do they do some kind of scan?

if its in both legs then its probably not clots.

sounds like water retention, wear drainpipe trousers and pumps for a while, sometimes a tap on the foot works.

It sounds like it could be a bad case of penis feet.

Take two bar-girls twice a day morning and evening.

Take medication for the duration of your stay in Thailand.

You may exceed stated dose

oh looooong time since I had such a good healthy laugh, thx to everybody for all the relevant answers! But sure its NOT clots!

Sdigit: your advice is far the best! Not sure it helps though - but worth a full scale long lasting test!

Well you can give that a go if you really want to but I find that homeopathic meds are not nearly as effective as the real deal.

Leave the missus out of it if you can, drug her and slip out on your own for your daily meds is Dr Digits advice

Dr Sidigit,

I am attracted to the cure you mention including the free beer compensation for failure.
Whilst reading this post i have developed slightly swollen feet.
If i trial your cure for a week or two on my arrival in BKK will the offer of free beer still stand ?
