My mom is age 88, has Parkinson's disease and takes a water pill (hydrochlorot 12.5 mg) she has swollen feet--help?

Swollen feet: You should have her doctor see her to evaluate her edema. She may need a stronger, loop, diuretic such as furosemide. At her age, she probably has chronic kidney disease (ckd) and hydorchlorothiazie (hctz) diuretics are not able to make her kidneys produce adequate amounts of urine to get rid of her swelling. Edema's other causes are a low Albumin or worsening heart failure.

I have numbing, stinging pain bottom of feet, and joints. What can I take for pain? I have parkinson's (early). Have parkinson's. Lately burning, stinging pain feet. Swollen feet. Pain is driving me crazy. What can I take for pain? Some numbness.

Burning: Burning and stinging pain and swelling is usually not related to parkinson's disease. These problems may indicate an autonomic neuropathy, among other neurological and non-neurological diagnoses. It is usually a good idea to determine the cause and diagnosis of problems before deciding on curative or noncurative, symptomatic treatment.

My son 1yr old have swollen feet I don't know why?

My son 1yr old have swollen feet I don't know why?

Need assessment: If there is persistant swelling, it needs to be checked out. I would not want to speculate on all the causes. Renal concerns, vascular problems, allergies and autoimmune/hematologic and cardiac conditions have to be considered if it is persistant. So it is best to see a pediatrician.

I have swollen feet will asperin help anything at all?

I have swollen feet will asperin help anything at all?

Probably not.: Swollen feet have many causes. Did you sustain an injury? Do you have lower extremity circulatory problems? Do you have congestive heart failure? All these conditions, and more, can cause swelling in the lower extremities. Although aspirin is somewhat of an anti-inflammatory medication, it usually does not treat overt swelling. You should seek professional help for diagnosis and treatment.
