I started working a month ago after being unemployed for over a year. My feet and ankles have been swelling up like crazy and my feet hurt like hell by the end of a 9+ hour shift. Compression stockings only keep the swelling trapped under the socks and makes it much worse. I'm not sure if this is a fixable issue or not, or something that is just normal.

      I have swelling and redness in my feet and legs. I tested negative for venous insufficiency and dvt. I went to an infectious disease doctor and he did a test that showed that I have an infection caused by two types of bacteria. The first one is stenotrothomonas maltophilia and the second one is acinetobacter. I’m on IV antibiotics now for 14 days. I also have to take an oral antibiotic. You just have to find the right doctor.

      I used to be the same way and found that changing my salt intake and losing weight helped me a lot!

      Can you try a harder level compression? If not there is surgery
