In brief: Swelling

You need to be evaluated by a vascular specialist that has a special interest in lymphedema.
You need further testing and treatment.

In brief: Salt and no exercise

You are describing pedal edema which is worsened by the above and improved by correcting them. Bad veins ( venous incompaten)could be a great contibuting factor, as can obesity.
Lower extremity edema is increased by all these.
