Re: swollen foot wont go down

Well for starters, staying off of it helps but you might need to elevate it as well- think 6" above your hips while sitting. Prop it on pillows in bed at night. Consider icing it for 15-20 minutes every 1-3 hours. An anti-inflammatory (Ibuprofren or Tylenol) couldn't hurt either. Feet tend to swell easier than other areas of the body. If this doesn't seem to help after a few days, I'd see a podiatrist for a second opinion!

Hope this helps!
