    This is New! My Feet are swelling!

    Primal Fuel
    The past 2 days my feet have been swelling and my ankles aching by the end of my work day. It's not severe, but it's definitely something new. Any thoughts?

    in before "are you pregnant?"
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    ........?
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    Have you been very stationary (ie sitting a lot) combined with potential dehydration? Have you worked hard and sweated a lot in last day or so doing sprints/weights?

    Alleviate symptoms by raising your feet above your heart to encourage drainage, also drink, move about and consider rehydrations salts.

    Swollen feet ankles affected me after travelling long distances and not drinking enough, also after heavy sweating (when racing) and consequent salt imbalance followed by more travelling!

    Last time it happened to me I then had a bit of visual disturbance and a slight migraine which confirmed the dehydration. Was fine the next day.

    Isn't this a classic potassium deficiency sign?

    Have you been eating anything that you wouldn't normally? I get swollen ankles when I eat any of the foods that I'm intolerant to. have you been eating more salt than usual? Have you eaten something with hidden MSG in it, such as bought chicken stock?

    This sounds like the likely cause. Since going primal, I haven't really paid much attention to my water intake and I get dehydrated pretty easily, but this has never happened to me before.

    This is also a slight possibility. I take Mag Citrate which may cause the deficiency, but also take Athletic Greens most days which has 300mg Potassium per serving. And I frequently eat avocado, strawberries, tomatoes, bell pepper, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, and tuna all of which are listed as foods that are potassium rich. Hmmm.... would taking Mag cause an imbalance?
