Your history is suggestive of pitting pedal edema...There are 3 main factors causing edema of the legs in your case: - gout arthritis - being overweight - CHF So, it is important to treat these underlying causes in order to reduce edema...if your father is hypertensive and diabetic there is likely chance of congestive heart failure... Consult nearest physician or cardiologist they will do the needful.
