Swelling can be common in Parkinson’s disease especially if you find it difficult to move. If you spend long periods sitting still and don’t do much exercise, fluid can build up in the feet and lower legs causing swelling.
Increasing the amount you move can reduce the swelling. It may also help to keep your legs raised when sitting or lying down, for example, raise your legs by using a foot stool.
A podiatrist can recommend exercises that can help, for example ankle rotations.
