Swollen legs are a sign that something is wrong. The swelling comes from fluid gathering in the legs because of heart and circulatory problems. More serious causes include blood clots and heart failure. While there are some less serious reasons for leg swelling – pregnancy, weight-gain, or certain medications – you should always check with a vein specialist if you have persistent swelling in your legs. Varicose veins are often the culprit. That swelling can be relieved and brought under control with proper care from Mercyhealth’s Vein Clinic.
