What is Leg Swelling/Leg Pain?
Leg pain and swelling can be a symptom of vein disease. If left untreated, leg swelling, also called edema, can increase pressure on other tissues, leading to additional medical problems. Leg pain that is connected to vein disease is called “rest pain.” Patients suffering from this type of leg pain will experience discomfort during physical activity and while at rest.
What Causes Leg Swelling/Leg Pain?
The swelling and pain in your legs may indicate venous insufficiency. Your veins play an important role in the circulation of blood from your legs to your heart. When the veins in your legs cease to work properly, you may experience leg swelling or pain due to inadequate blood circulation. Compression of the iliac artery and an existing blood clot are also possible causes of leg swelling.
What are the Symptoms of Leg Swelling/Leg Pain?
If pain and leg swelling are the results of a vein condition, they are usually felt around the calves and ankles. These symptoms may worsen when you sit or stand for prolonged periods of time.
What Should I do if I Have Leg Swelling or Leg Pain?
Leg pain and swelling is often associated with an injury. Which is why, many people do not consult a physician when the symptoms become worse. Leg pain and swelling associated with vein disease is a sign of a deeper problem with your extremities. If you are experiencing any pain and swelling in your legs, you need to contact our office to schedule a consultation. Dr. Moszczynski will determine the reason you have swelling and pain in your legs. He will then recommend an appropriate treatment.
How is Leg Swelling/Leg Pain Diagnosed?
Having a medical examination is the first step towards diagnosing the source of leg swelling and pain. Dr. Moszczynski will determine how the blood is flowing through your legs’ veins to make a diagnosis.
