For the first time in my life I am feeling old. Recently, I started noticing my feet become swollen after sitting and coding for a while. I’m 36. I’ve been a rock climber for years and I can hop on my bike and ride 20 miles no big deal…so its not like I’m horribly out of shape. I have been trying to take breaks and put my feet up and even move my toes…anything I can think of…I bought compression socks today.
I was wondering if anyone else has these issues. I have a good chair and I don’t feel scrunched up. I just worry that I might be doing permanent damage. And I’ve only been coding for 40 days. But I will admit I am hooked, and sometimes I will do long sessions…like ten hours…with breaks of course. I’m thinking about going to the doctor but any practical advice is appreciated thanks.
