Both of my feet feel extremely swollen, along with my hands and I can feel the rest of my body getting swollen. What could be the cause?

I woke up this morning, stood and my feet, and was alerted by the pain. How can I fix this? help.

Well my dad had that problem and come to find out his was alot of fluid built up in his body & caused his feet, legs, hands, basically his whole body to swell. That could be real serious, life threatening. You should definitely go to a doctor

Yes & your problem may not be what his was cause he also had trouble sleeping. Well not sleeping but during sleep he had so much fluid build up that during sleep he would stop breathing. He started sleeping like on the couch so he could sit up & that helped his breathing, we didn't kno it was fluid. Went on for like a week, finally went to doctor & they told him if he woulda waited 1 more day he probably would've died. So yea please go to doctor

Omg, that's horrible. I'm glad he's ok though. And if you don't mind me asking, how did they remove the fluid?

Mix good amount of salt in hot water and soak your feet for 15 to 20 mins. It will really help out.

You could have allergy. Check out the Mayo Clinic on line or E health. Good luck.

You might have gout (don't know if I spelt it right) but i know someone who has it.. He normally gets swollen feet and gets pains in his feet.

Swell could be serious, it may have been caused by medicine, the disease in your liver or kidney, which makes your body can't filter enough water. Or constitutional problems.
Do not use diuretics at random. I suggest you go to the doctor and have a complete examine.
