My feet, ankles & lower legs are swollen!

For the last week or so I've noticed that my feet, ankles & lower legs are swollen. Some days not so bad but most days the ankles look as big as large oranges! They don't hurt exactly, more of an ache when I have to walk. I can feel the tightness of my skin in those areas. Putting my feet up doesn't help much at all. I tried to lay flat with my feet up higher than my heart but I couldn't breathe laying on my back like that. That scared me! Repeated calls to my cardiologist's office have gone unanswered, which is unusual and really annoying. I see him next Thursday but I'm not sure if this is something that needs to be looked at NOW or if it can wait. I also have Type 2 Diabetes.
