In light of your symptoms, it is possible that you might have a cardio-vascular cause for your swollen feet and you will have to consult your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor will also have to run tests to exclude the possibility of kidney failure. Kidney and heart disease can lead to a person feeling very tired and sleepy.
