Swelling of the Feet

It's been a couple of years now that my feet swell a lot, especially in the evenings. My works demands working on a computer for long hrs. I wonder if it's because of that. There is no pain but sometimes the swelling is too much. When I press if with a finger there is a depression. All possible tests have been done, which showed nothing wrong. Desperately seeking some advice.

    Long computer usage itself is not going to lend itself to the swelling of the feet.
    Without knowing more about your situation, its really hard to make any comment. But from what you posted, you do not have any spinal issue, but just swelling of your feet...

    Two things pop into my mind when I hear that:

    1 - Diet Too Much Salt retention
    2 - Congestive Heart Failure

    If you are looking for online medical help, you would be better off at a general medical web site and not a specialized one like Spine-Health. I would also talk to your Primary care physician, to see what they say.
