Swollen feet and joints are very common. This unpleasant situation is not only unpleasant, it can also tell you a lot about your health. Here's what this means.
Legs, joints and feet can swell with long stays, walks and even seats. Especially if it is incorrect.
These parts of the body swell both during pregnancy and in uncomfortable clothes.
However, in some situations, an island in your feet, joints and feet should be your alarm as it can indicate serious health problems.
When blood normally runs through your body, then the flaps in the veins do not allow all blood to enter your legs. Over the years, the valves begin to weaken and work, and they return blood to your feet.
Venous thrombosis is another problem with the veins that leads to swelling of the legs, the articles and the foot. The cranks prevent the normal flow of blood through the veins and thus keep the fluid in the lower leg. If it does not respond in time, it can cause pituitary and heart attack, pulmonary embolism (lung infarction), but also stroke.
Leg swelling or peripheral edema may be a symptom of inadequate cardiac function. There may not be enough blood pumped and blood in the legs will not easily return to the heart.
Insufficient tight heart valves, that is, those that do not completely cover the heart cavities can also cause swelling of the joints of the feet and feet. If you notice another symptom of inadequate cardiac function, contact a physician immediately to prevent serious heart disease and conditions.
One of the major functions of the kidney in our body is the flow of fluid through them. When the kidneys do not function properly, additional fluid and sodium build up in the body and cause swelling.
This condition can result in urinary tract infection and damage the drainage system of the kidneys. Swelling caused by irregular kidney function usually manifests through swelling of the leg and forearm around the eyes.
In addition to other functions, the liver produces protein albumin. This protein keeps the fluid in our body in optimal condition and does not allow its excessive release into our tissues. Some disorders of the liver can cause the level of albumin in the blood to decrease, so the fluids are excreted in the tissue and, in this case, there is no swelling of the legs and articles in isolation, but may be the case with our internal organs. This condition is particularly dangerous.
Inappropriate lymphatic system operation
Along with the veins, the lymphatic system supplies oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and organs and removes carbon dioxide and waste. When the lymphatic system is blocked and when it is unable to perform its drainage function, it can result in fluid accumulated in one place, and this phenomenon is called lymphatic edema. This disease leads to tissue infection, so an operation can occur. The complication of this disease goes as far as cancer.
Problem with taking medication
Often it can happen that the swelling of the legs and the articles, as well as the feet, is a side effect of taking some medicines. These are the most common non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, oral contraceptive pills, oral steroids and the like. If your legs are swollen, try to avoid if it has anything to do with the drugs you take regularly.
