My mother definitely has the issue of her feet, ankles, and calves swelling up but that is when her back is acting up and she ends up with something in her back sitting on one of her nerves. She's been check out and everything and it's not her heart, it's not water retention…no reason or rhyme to hers.
She does not have Fibromyalgia, to our knowledge.

I have started to develop signs of swelling in my hands. I typically wear a size 5.5 for my ring finger (left hand) and there are now days that I can't wear my wedding ring or engagement ring because of the swelling. I am a Fibro patient and was diagnosed around 2013(ish…memory is, of course, gone) and this just started about two-three months ago-give or take a month. So this was not something that always happened to me either…

I'm sorry for the swelling and pain that you are experiencing. I hope it gets better for you soon. *gentle hugs*

I would mention this to your doctor. Swollen feet could be a symptom of heart issues. Hope not! Also, are you drinking enough water during the day? Could be the heat?? Just trying to think of everything.
Hope you are doing better soon.
