Common causes of leg swelling include idiopathic edema (swelling of unknown cause), overweight, is older, salt retention, cellulitis, congestive heart failure, venous insufficiency, pregnancy, and medication side effects.
Some tips that may help reduce swelling:
1.Put your legs on pillows to raise them above your heart while lying down.
2.Exercise your legs. This helps pump fluid from your legs back to your heart.
3.Follow a low-salt diet, which may reduce fluid buildup and swelling.
4.Wear support stockings (sold at most drugstores and medical supply stores).
5.When traveling, take breaks often to stand up and move around.
6.Avoid wearing tight clothing or garters around your thighs.
7.Lose weight if you need to.
swelling in leg may be due to cellulitis/venous stasis/lymphoedema.
Additional information and tests are required for diagnosis.
Lower limb venous doppler may be required along with blood tests.
