We went to the beach over the weekend in San Diego. My legs got FRIED!!!!! I put sun screen on EVERYWHERE but my legs...never occurred to me that they would get sun burnt. Anyways, yesterday on our 6 hour drive home back to AZ- I noticed my feet started to swell. We had been stopping along they way about every hour to go potty so I figured it would PREVENT swelling but it didn't.
Now, the tops of my feet are a little sun burnt too-- can that be the cause of the swelling or do you think its something else?? I feel fine- no headaches or anything...just feet that feel funny.
I've been elevating my feet for a few hours on a off (had to cook hubby dinner) The swelling went down till I got up to cook dinner. It came back but Im laying here with my feet up as I type and I can see my bones again. The swelling isn't "edema type" swelling-- it doesn't stay indented when I poke it. I just turns white when I poke it cause they are so red! haha So I know its not water retention swelling so I've been drinking lots of water to keep hydrated. My legs are pretty burnt. I've never ever had sunburnt legs or feet before so I can't compare to those times but this is a first for swollen feet too.
I REALLLLLLY hope its just from the sunburn. I'll let you all know how it is by tomorrow evening. Thanks again for the comments.
