Dilation of veins: Most likely you are fine and the swelling is just due to dilation of the veins in the leg and is caused by alcohol. But if its painful, you drink more than 5 drinks/day, you have protein in your urine (your doc may have checked a urinalysis) or you have had any injuries to your left leg then you may need to be seen and have someone look a little deeper.
