Swelling: Fluid retention can be associated with swelling in the legs. Usually starts from the feet and ankles. Shoes might feel tight. Socks and shoes may leave markings on the skin. Feet might feel full when walking. In more severe forms, swelling is visible with decrease in skin markings and folds.

Yes.: The drainage system of the legs is never perfectly symmetric. Sometimes it is really asymmetric due to prior injury or infection.
