Swelling should always be checked by the doctor. Evaluate your day - have you been sitting or standing in one place for a long time ? Did you eat food outside as that can mean high sodium ? Maybe you had fermented foods outside the home as that also includes high content of sodium. If swelling subsides with change in position then it's considered normal but if it persists then must be checked.
