Leg swellings are sometimes an indication of a serious health problem. As soon as you notice any puffiness in your legs you should see a doctor immediately. That way you can avoid pain, discomfort and potential complications, and get the best outcome.
Possible causes of leg, feet and ankle swelling include kidney, liver, or heart disease. Other causes include blood clots, obesity, blood pressure medications, hormone medications, pregnancy, immobility, and poor diet.
