Hi tertia.
Leg swelling isn't always a sign of a heart or circulation problem. You may often experience swelling due to fluid buildup from being overweight, being inactive, after sitting or standing for a long time, or wearing tight stockings. ... Cardiomyopathy (problem with the heart muscle) Chronic kidney disease.

How do I stop my ankles and feet to swelling after being sun burnt


Hello Anne.
Since this is a Q & A about cars and trucks,,, I will venture off topic..
This is serious and therefore should be evaluated by a physician. When you go to your doctor's appointment, be prepared to discuss the following possibilities. If the ankle swelling started just after the sunburn, it may be due to an inflammatory reaction as the skin tries to heal. A sunburn is a first degree burn but it still causes local inflammation and pain. As the body mounts an inflammatory response, the capillaries in the area dilate and become leaky. This process can cause localized edema and swelling, which usually resolves on its own over time. However, not every sunburn causes this reaction, so if yours is severe, you should see a physician. The reason you get extreme pain when you stand still is because the blood is pooling in your lower legs causing the swelling to increase. It is so painful cause the tissues are ripping apart to create room for the 'blood pooling' or tissue swelling. The most sensitive areas are the shins cause the tissue is tightly attached to the bone. That is why when you sit down or lay down it subsides or goes away. The body is not "upright" causing gravity to pool the blood in your lower legs ankles and feet can also be due to lymphedema. Lymph fluid travels up through vessel and is filtered through the lymph nodes of the body. Any issue with the lymph nodes or vessels in your leg can cause the fluid to pool in lower areas of the leg. If you have ever had lymph nodes in your abdomen, pelvis, or legs removed or irradiated, you should see a doctor very soon. Another possible cause of your problem, is your body retaining too much fluid overall, which can be manifested as swollen ankles and feet. This condition, called pitting edema, can affect people who have problems with their heart, liver, or other body systems. When fluid builds up in the legs, it can also build up in the lungs and other critical organs, so it is important to have this issue evaluated immediately. I strongly recommend that you make an appointment to see your primary care doctor ASAP!!, and he or she can refer you to a specialist if this becomes necessary.

My left leg from knee to toes swells daily at least an inch. I sleep it goes to normal


Swelling of the leg may involve a noticeable distension of the shin or calf, ankles, feet or toes. Foot swelling may be a common occurrence which most of us will experience at some point in life after a long day of standing or sitting but may also be an indication of a more serious pathology as in certain cardiovascular disorders.
Recurrent or persistent swelling of the feet should be investigated by a medical practitioner especially if you have a history of cardiovascular disease or have noticed a change in color, sensation or mobility of the leg, foot or toe.
Blood rich in oxygen and nutrients flows through the arteries to the target area. Blood carrying deoxygenated blood returns to the heart via the veins where it is quickly routed to the lungs to be replenished with oxygen.
Blood flowing to the leg has to return to the heart through a group of veins with intermittent valves located throughout the course of the vein. This venous blood (blood in the veins that is returning to the heart) has to flow against gravity and since the pressure is usually lower at the feet, other muscles of the leg assist with 'pumping' this blood back to the heart. This muscle pump is most active when we are walking and least when we are standing stationary or sitting. Blood travels short distances up the vein and backflow of blood is prevented by a series of valves in these veins.
Working alongside the blood vessels are the lymphatic vessels which return lymphatic fluid (lymph) back up the body to empty into the blood system.
Swelling of the leg usually occurs as a result of an inadequate flow of blood or lymphatic fluid back up to the torso of the body. However other localized causes may further contribute to swollen feet, ankles or toes.

My lower leg was run over by a car, told no broken bones ,4 days later having extreme pain, burning, and blisters around ankle, with redness and hot touch, numb toes , now pain back of my knee.


The compression of the muscle has caused "compartment syndrome" In other words the swelling is causing damage and you need to seek medical attention right now if you want to save that leg.
