Woke up this morning with minor swollen foot and ankle with pitting and edema. When I push on pitting it takes a while for it to come back, leaves nice intention.

Wtf, is going on all of sudden.

Should I be concern? Like I don't want to go running back to ER.

Try elevating the foot and cutting back on salt and foods that contain a lot of salt. Also, drink plenty of water. That sounds counterintuitive, but if you aren't getting enough fluids, your body will hold on to what it has. Drinking water helps flush out your system.
