4 Causes of swollen legs, and ways to treat it

Swollen legs might happen when your legs and feet become larger than usual. Adults are more likely to experience it, and it can be a frightening experience at first. Swelling of the legs or feet can be caused by a variety of factors, some of which I will discuss in this post. For the sake of this essay, we’ll look at some of the most prevalent causes of leg swelling and how to cure them.

Cause:

a) Inflammation: Have you ever noticed how swollen your leg gets when it’s fractured or injured? This is a normal reaction to a shattered bone or torn ligament. However, it could also indicate that you have a more serious inflammatory illness, such as Arthritis.

b) Edema: Edema is a condition in which the tissues or blood vessels in your leg area hold more fluid than normal. This happens whether you stand for lengthy periods of time or sit for an extended period of time, as I’m sure you’ve experienced. It could also signal that you are overweight or don’t get enough exercise. If you are the sort who has this problem frequently and does not exercise, you should probably start working out more.


c) Kidney Issues: Kidney issues, or kidney-related issues, are one of the most common reasons of leg edema. Rather than removing water and waste from your circulation, the kidney causes fluids to accumulate in your blood, which can cause swelling in your leg. So, if you’re suffering sporadic swelling in your arms and legs, make an appointment with your doctor.

d) Medication: If you observe any swelling on sections of your body, particularly your legs, after taking medications, it is most likely due to the drugs’ side effects. Aspirin and ibuprofen are two examples of such medications.

Treatment:

a) Limit your salt intake.

b) If you haven’t done so already, begin doing exercises.

c) If it is possible for you, raise your leg above your heart level for 30 minutes as many times as possible during the day. The swelling will naturally subside as time passes.

d) Put compression stockings on your legs. You can get it from any e-commerce store and wear it until the swelling goes down.
