 Do you have a problem with swelling in your feet? These 6 diseases can also be signs

The problem of general swelling of feet is seen in many people. When traveling in a long-distance bus or airplane, when traveling or working while standing for a long time, when bitten by an insect, when falling, when there is an injury caused by bumping somewhere, when a bone is broken, the leg becomes swollen. A woman's feet also get swollen during pregnancy. Such problems are common for a limited period of time, which will get better on their own after some time.

But in some cases, when there is a problem in the organs like heart, kidney and liver without any injury, other symptoms can be seen along with swelling of the feet every day. Therefore, if the feet are swollen, an examination should be done immediately to find out the cause.

How do you know if your feet are swollen?

In general, due to poor blood circulation, the legs become swollen. If you press on the leg bone or ball with your finger and it becomes swollen, it looks like there is a hole. In this case, it may be difficult to wear shoes, it may be uncomfortable to walk and it may also be painful.

These may be signs of illness

Deep vein thrombosis

Usually, both feet are swollen. But if only one leg continues to swell repeatedly, it may be a sign of a blood vessel problem, which is called deep vein thrombosis. Deep vein thrombosis is a blood clot in the vein. Which can be in any part of the body.

But in most cases it is seen in the lower parts of the body, thighs or legs. If the blood clots in the veins of the legs, the blood cannot flow. This prevents blood from returning to the heart.

If such signs are observed, a health examination should be done. Doctors can check by duplex ultrasonography, venography and blood test if they are suspicious after looking at the symptoms.

Heart problems

Even if you have a heart problem, your feet may swell. Difficulty in breathing at night along with swelling of the legs and difficulty in walking can be a sign of heart disease. In fact, the heart is pumping blood 24 hours a day. For some reason, if there is a problem with the heart and the heart is unable to pump, fluid may accumulate in the lower parts of the body and cause swelling in the legs and toes.

Therefore, if these symptoms are observed, heart problems can be detected by echo and ECG.


Arthritis sufferers accumulate uric acid crystals (stones) in their joints, which cause extreme pain and swelling in the legs. Usually, the pain is more in the big toe. However, there is no cure for this disease. It can be controlled by keeping the lifestyle in balance.

Kidney problems

Another cause of leg swelling can be kidney problems. When the kidney does not get enough sodium. Kidneys cannot perform their functions properly. If the kidney does not work, it can cause swelling of the legs, difficulty in breathing, less urination, and swelling of the eyes and mouth when you wake up in the morning.

If such symptoms are observed, urine and blood tests should be done to identify whether it is a kidney problem or not.

Liver problems

Sometimes the liver stops producing a protein called albumin. It is a protein that prevents blood from leaking from blood vessels. If the body lacks this protein, blood can flow from the blood vessels. As a result, fluid accumulates in the legs and the legs become swollen.

If you feel symptoms like jaundice, injury, loss of appetite, change in color of urine, lack of energy in the body along with leg swelling, you should get a liver test. This problem is usually seen in drinking too much alcohol. They have problems with liver damage and swelling of the legs, as well as water retention in the stomach and lungs.

Varicose veins

Varicose veins also cause swollen legs. This problem affects any nerve in the body. But it mostly affects the feet. As a result, the leg becomes swollen, painful and the veins appear swollen.

This problem can be seen in professions that often involve standing for long periods of time, such as nurses, teachers, police, traffic, security guards, and waiters.

If such a problem is found, it should be tested immediately. Because the sooner varicose veins are identified, the faster the treatment and recovery is possible.
