Gluten Intolerance - Joint Swelling

Patient

Q: Does the kind of swelling associated with Gluten Intolerance go down once the feet are elevated? I have had mild swelling on my ankles for the past month. It is not relieved by walking around (actually worse) and my foot goes back down to normal when I go to bed. As soon as my feet hit the floor though they start swelling. I have seen a doctor and they have ruled out all the serious problems associated with swelling. Today my hand also swelled up but went down within an hour.

Symptoms:  Ankle Swelling
