Re: Swollen, bloated feet - HELP!!

I have been noticing for a month or so that my left ankle and foot have been swollen at the end of the day. Several years ago I did pull every muscle and tendon in my foot due to a fall.
My doctor states that there is nothing that can be done but put my foot up every evening and ice it.
This past week I have been an onsite coordinator for an education week, therefore I have been on my feet for long hours each day. I wore good walking shoes with orthotics every day. At the end of each day I have tried to take care by putting my feet up before going to bed.
Within the last 48 hours I have been unable to get the swelling down, which extends from my toes to the ankle above the ankle bone.
I have been off my feet for the better part of today, but the left ankle still shows little change in the swelling.
