For the past week my feet have been swelling really badly. Like 9 months pregnant, been on feet all day type swelling. I am definitely not pregnant, what else could cause it?

I have an appointment with my GP on Tuesday so will discuss then also

Dangerous to put that up here. The list for causes of swollen feet is huge, but most of the won't apply to you, without knowing your full medical history, and someone will give you an answer that will freak you out. Go and see your GP, and make it earlier than Tuesday if you're worried.

Drink 2-3 litres of water a day and keep your feet elevated until you see your GP.
