I have this same exact problem on my feet and sometimes it happens on my hands where they will itch, swell, turn red and the redness will travel up my arms to the elbow. Some pain and discomfort which last for 2-3 days then will go away. This has happened for 2-3 years and I have had at least 3 episodes. Actually my right hand just went through the process this past week and now my left foot is going through. It could be allergies or some sort of menopause symptom? I am not over weight and I exercise at least 4 times a week, I like your suggestions and will give them a try and check out your links. Thanks Judy I am Judy too.View Thread
