swollen feet

a friend told me his feet have both swollen up. He's had $6000 worth of tests and they can't find anything. He had an echo for his heart, they checked his liver and kidneys, all seems to be fine. They put him on lasix. Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? They said it's not gout because it doesn't hurt.

Re: swollen feet

it could be as simple as water retention, which could be resultant from insufficient water intake and poor activity level. can try elevating the feet
