Hands or feet?: If your hands and thumb are swollen or your feet and big toe are swollen it will feel tight. This can be due to fluid retention from , salting your food, eating salty food, high blood pressure, allergies and more. See your doctor to get started on preventing this from effecting your heart, blood pressure, kidneys or lungs. Elevate your hands or feet and make an appointment to see your doctor.
