What is his height and weight?
Is he on his feet at work or any other time for long periods?
Does he eat a lot of salty foods or salt his food a lot?

If this were my husband I would make a doctor appointment, then go to drug store for an OTC diuretic in the diet aid department/ aisle...... Have him stay home all next weekend, so he will be close to bathroom, make sure he eats 2 bananas a day to replace the potassium.
If he's better by Monday, cancel the dr appointment. Just what I would do with my husband
