No, this is not the cause of your swelling. If your swelling is mild, watch your sodium (salt) intake from all sources, not just table salt, Salt is found in many foods we wouldnt expect like soft drinks, cereals, condiments, canned goods and frozen prepared foods. Drink more water to help flush away the retained fluid. If the swelling is pretty substantial and/or if it "pits"-press down on the top of your foot, if a finger print "pit" remains, that is pitting edema-this may indicate your heart is not pumping as good as it should and you need to see your Dr asap.
