I have diabetes and the past few days my ankles and feet have been getting more and more swollen. No matter how much I rest or elevate my feet, the swelling will not go down. When I woke up this morning, I had pain and trouble walking. Should I wait to see my doctor or should I make an emergency room visit?
I think pain and trouble walking is a good reason to visit the ER. They can help control the situation from getting worse. Make sure to have a follow up as soon as you can with your diabetes doctor, because they know your history to better help you with the long term of this problem!
