A member asked:

Fluid on lower legs after day at work but gone when i wake up in morning?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Venous insufficiency: Fluid will pool in your lower extremities as it fights gravity to return to your heart. This is why it typically is worse throughout the day with your legs being lower then your chest and improves with leg elevation such as sleeping. keeping your legs elevated as often as possible throughout the day will minimize the leg swelling.
