I'm switching to the exciting world of nursing as a career change. Just graduated last month and got an GN Externship at a local hospital working in the ED this summer while studying for the NCLEX - pretty awesome experience so far. I love everything about it, but have been working at a desk the last 8 years. I'm in good shape and everything (compete in marathons and triathlons), but last week I worked two consecutive days, each 12 hour shifts with lots of running around and sure enough, my feet are now swollen! I'm sure the 2 hour walk I took on Saturday didn't help, but I'm wondering if this will go away? Should I see someone? Should I soak my feet in epsom salt or something? I'm a little worried and not sure if there's some secret nursing secret to avoiding swollen feet... ? I also have T1 diabetes, but am very well controlled - just a relatively slow healer.
