Swollen Legs And Feet

Edema, or swelling, in the legs or ankles is caused by fluid build-ups that lead to inflammation. Sometimes minor swelling is a result of sitting too long, but it should fade fast. Significant, painful, or sudden swelling should be immediately examined by a healthcare professional. Underlying issues like diabetes, venous insufficiency, and gout can cause this symptom.
Swollen legs and feet can be a sign of a variety of conditions, some of which are more serious than others. If you have swelling that doesn't go away, is accompanied by pain or redness, or is severe, you should see a healthcare provider. Swelling can be caused by underlying health conditions such as heart, liver or kidney problems or a blood clot, or it can be a side effect of certain medications.
