Whats the cause ?: Your complain is very general. Things that cause that include severe allergic reactions, heart failure, severe malnutrition, severe fluid overload, sepsis, etc. Swelling is a very non-specific finding and has so many causes that identifying the cause takes more than 400 words allows me to help. If it is causing you problems, then getting a doctors opinion should give you peace of mind.
