(HealthDay News) -- Leg swelling typically occurs from fluid buildup or inflammation, says Mayo Clinic.
It can affect any part of the leg, including the foot, ankle, calf or thigh. Even for non-emergency problems, prompt care is still recommended.
To minimize leg swelling, consider:
- Restricting the amount of salt in your diet.
- Putting a pillow under your legs when lying down.
- Wearing elastic compression stockings.
- Giving yourself breaks, especially if you need to sit or stand for long periods.
