A few days ago I started walking after dinner nothing strenuous didnt even break a sweat. My calves to my toes are swollen like i have been bitten by a snake or spider, no puncture wounds or redness just a description of how it looks and feels. I do have high blood pressure and take meds but this has never happened to me what should I do or take to bring swelling down?
Why are my legs and feet extremely swollen?

You will have to see a doctor about this as extreme edema has a wide variety of causes form hormones to heart. High blood pressure is not a requirement and edema occurs in regular people also without medication being involved.. If you can, sit with your feet elevated to help stop fluid pooling.
If it is something nice and simple they might just give you diuretics. I can say with some confidence that a medical opinion really is required however. Idle speculation about possible causes will just cause stress and worry now and won't change the outcome.
