Is there anything I can get from the grocery store or drug store for my lower leg swelling until I can see a doctor?

In brief: Less salt

Bilateral leg swelling can have many cause spanning benign as well as serious diagnosis.
You should see your family doctor asap, but until then if your swelling is in both legs, a low salt diet is a good place to start.
