Hi there,
You should not have stopped valparin without medical consultation. Constant spasms may indicate that you have not been taking valparin in adequate dosage or you may need an add on drug. Swelling of the feet, painful feet and soles may be due to effects of valparin or some other cause. The exact cause can be determined only after a complete medical history and clinical examination. The common side effects of valparin are hepatotoxicity,weight gain,hyperactivity,hair fall etc.Swelling and pain in one foot can be due to bursitis,tendinitis,rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, gout etc.Discuss your concerns with your doctor and get your doubts clarified. Do keep me posted.
Best of luck and regards!
