Swollen legs (OEDEMA)

Typically, oedemas linked to superficial circulatory problems have, in their initial stage, the following characteristics:
Developing progressively
More pronounced at the end of the day, worsening when standing or exposed to heat, improving when the legs rest flat
Usually found in the ankles, rarely in the calves
Not very painful but often accompanied by a feeling of heaviness in the legs, cramps or restlessness
Not accompanied with noticeable redness of the skin
Not accompanied with any other symptoms such as general weakness, breathlessness, temperature...

If you have this type of oedema, a superficial venous origin is likely but if the symptoms persist or the appearance of your oedema is different, contact your doctor or your angiologist for further advice.
