I am a 27 year old male that is 5’10” 208 lbs. I used to be 283 lbs back in October of 2017 but have followed my doctor’s advise on weight management since being diagnosed with hypertension. I had the foot swelling actually happened to me during October of 2017 before being diagnosed with hypertension. I have had blood work and stress test done and nothing really jumping out to the doctors as the root of the issue. My blood work did show my potassium being off at 3.4. I am scheduled to have a Doppler test done on my legs at the vein specialist.

This swelling is weird because it doesn’t pit and only happens at the bottom of the feet. It is always just one foot. It had been 6 month before the swelling started happening again and this was after have meniscus surgery back in May. I am back to moving around and going to the gym. I am continuing to lose weight and watch my salt as well as take the potassium supplement the doctor prescribed. I am just wondering if anyone has experience this random swelling.

I was an Amlodipine 10 mg till vein specialist took me off it this past Tuesday. This swelling issue happened before I was put on blood pressure medication. The swelling started back in 2017-present.
