As far as I am aware there have been two similar experiences neither of which matches your scenario exactly. In both cases a young woman (under 30) died of heart failure brought on by DVT after but not during a long haul flight. One was from NZ to the US, the other from Aus to the UK. I can find no reference to anyone being found dead on arrival.

I do a fair amount of flying Aust - Spain mainly and have never had this problem but I make a habit of getting up every hour or so and walking around the cabin two or three times. I'm constantly amazed by those people who get on a long haul flight and barely move from their seats the entire flight.

I can't sit still on a plane all that long... it drives me crazy... It is really important to get up and move around a bit at least every hour, especially on the longer flights.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

They should widen the aisles on those airplanes so we can walk around.
One thing I did notice: is that when you have to go!! The drink cart is blocking your seat while the flight attendent has gone for some change and stops to chat with the pilot.... Wait!? Who's flying the Plane??

Haukebo:
If You are not already checked into intensive care (surrounded by estate attorneys & 10 doctors) based on some of the responses , I offer the following via internet on Heat Edema:

"Heat edema (swelling) is usually seen in an unacclimated person who is not use to the hot weather. If you begin to sweat profusely, show extreme redness in the face, have low water and sodium retention, and begin to swell in the lower legs, feet, and hands get out of the heat and move to a cool, shady place. Drink cold water and elevate your legs. Your symptoms should resolve quickly once you cool down. To help prevent heat edema, get your body used to being in the heat slowly and steadily over time".

I have had days on some trips where it has affected me & it can be painful too. I agree that long sails on hot days with little movement don't help. Good luck beating it.......I'm working on eliminating it 100%.

Chuteman-

Whether it is heat-related edema or something else, it really needs to be addressed by a doctor. Better to be safe than sorry.

The TV Show Regis & Kellie: Kellie gets swelled feet each time she's on an airplane. She doesn't know why. Her shoes will not fit her.
Check with your doctor immediately.
Take care.

Post Партнерская программа MyLotto

Добрый день!

Приглашаем к сотрудничеству адвертов.

Немного истории:
TheLotter.com был создан с целью удовлетворить потребность в глобальной маркетинговой службе в сфере лотерейного бизнеса и сделать возможным свободное и неограниченное приобретение через Интернет лотерейных билетов для участия в любых официальных лотереях мира – возможно, единственного на сегодняшний день товара, который можно приобрести исключительно на локальном рынке продаж.
С целью достижения этой цели, начиная с 1995 года, вкладываются значительные усилия и ресурсы в создание всемирной торговой системы, уже доказавшей свои возможности в плане осуществления маркетинговой деятельности, охватывающей большинство ведущих мировых лотерей.
До 2006 года у TheLotter.com не было партнерской программы, а значит не было возможности вебмастерам всего мира сотрудничать с TheLotter.com. Теперь ситуация изменилась и мы рады представить нашу партнерскую программу MyLotto.

Партнерская программа MyLotto предлагает следующие условия:
- точная статистика для каждого партнера 24/7
- поддержка и помощь нашим партнерам 24/7
- ежемесячные выплаты различными способами (Для получения выплат на WebMoney Вам нужно выбрать любую платежную систему и в деталях платежа указать: WM Z*****)
- личный аккаунт менеджер
- большой выбор маркетинговых ресурсов
- дополнительные бонусы топовым адвертам
- реферальная система
- два способа оплаты за продажи:
1) $40 за каждую продажу, (10-20 продаж - 50$, более 20 - обсуждается индивидуально)
2) 10% от общей суммы потраченной игроком на протяжении всей жизни
- оплачиваются пользователи любой страны

Будем рады Вас видеть среди наших партнеров!

Are You guys Doctors or working for the AMA?
For Kelly's swollen feet on the plane like millions of usy who fly......loosen your shoes better yet take them off & walk around on long flights......but for those Dr. fans.............here's Mayo Clinic comments
Foot swelling during air travel: A concern? - MayoClinic.com

As for my swelling episodes that disappear as soon as things cool down from sahara levels...........thanks for your concern but I'll wait to visit a Dr. in a foreign country as our prescription crazed white coat drug pushers who masquerade as Drs would either tell me to stay out of the heat, keep my feet elevated....humm never sailed like that yet, or they would run lots of tests that would be unnecessary not to mention waste $$$$ and when baffled just reach in and take the RX slip out of the their pocket & start writing..........

Ms. Haukebo,

You received a lot of very learned advice in the other posts, but...

In my experience, the most common reason for swelling/puffy feet while sailing is overexposure to the sun. Because they are usually shrouded by shoes and socks, and when bared are normally perpendicular to the sun's rays, the tops of feet are highly sensitive to the sun and take a serious beating. Even very mild sun exposure can cause feet to swell. Many folks neglect to put sunscreen on the tops of their feet and ankles, which actually need an even higher SPF sunscreen than what you'd use on the rest of your body. And it needs to be reapplied more often.

If you're already doing this and still experiencing puffy feet, then you might consider some of the other possibilities suggested.
