Normally this happens when we have improper diet, have stressful schedule, drink too much beverages, less sleep or may be lack of sound sleep.
It is necessary at this point to pay attention
1. to have NUTRITIOUS diet.
2. to drink sufficient water.
3. to go to the bed on time so can have 6-8 hrs rest
4. Most important Meditiate. "Mindfullness in plane English" a book can help properly in this case.
5. Please choose slow but permanent solution rather than seeking tablets mostly sleeping pills as quick solution.

About a week ago, my doctor took me off Clopidogrel Bisulfat 75mg blood thinner, which I've been taking for about two years.
I just now noticed that my feet, then ankles and now lower legs are severely swollen and my chest is tight.
