Feet Swelling While Sitting At Desk
Insuffiency: Usually when you have swelling in your feet and legs when sitting it is due to a condition called venous insuffiency. The veins in the legs do not work well and retain fluid which should be circulated through out the body. This fluid is then retained in the skin. If left untreated it can lead to cellulitis (skin infection) and wounds.See 1 more doctor answer
Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more
I have been getting severe cramps back of thighs, leg falling asleep when sitting for a little while along with foot swelling ony left leg?
Discuss with your MD: All of these symptoms may be local musculo-skeletal problems but you need to talk to your doctor. Cramps could be an electrolyte disorder. One sided swelling could be venous insufficiency but it could be phlebitis. The leg falling asleep is most likely a compression of a nerve while you are asleep. However, you have a number of leg questions that requires someone seeing you personally.See 1 more doctor answer

Bee sting: Typically, with most bee stings, one will notice localized redness and swelling to the affected site. Oral benadryl, (diphenhydramine) ice and/or a topical 'anti-itch' ointment should help symptoms. Should one experience any throat or facial swelling with difficulty getting a full-breath, go to emergency care. With redness staying local, antibiotics are not needed. Your doc should be consulted with any change.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends on the cause: Swelling can be caused by many things (liver, kidney, heart diseases, and blood clots are the serious ones). Everyday, reversible non-serious causes are meds (motrin and similar, calcium blockers, hormones). If you don't have a health threatening condition, limiting salt intake (sodium) and keeping your feet elevated will help.See 1 more doctor answer
It depends...: It all depends on what is the reason why you are having swelling. If you don't suffer of any illness a very common reason is what is called dependent edema if you stand up or are on your feet for a long time during the day. In that case elevation of your feet for 20-30 minutes can help. Also if you consume a lot of salt or sodium that can cause it so try to go low on that in your diet.See 1 more doctor answer
RICE: For minor injuries, the rice treatment can help relieve swelling and pain. Rest – protect your injured foot and avoid prolonged standing or walking. Ice – no more than 15 minutes at a time and don’t apply ice directly to your skin. Compression – apply an ace wrap. Elevation – try to elevate your foot above your heart. If your symptoms don’t improve after 48 hours, see your doctor.
Depends: On what is causing swelling. If it is from an injury, ice within first 48 hours will be helpful. There are various other conditions that may cause swelling. Ice will not help in the majority of these cases.See 4 more doctor answers
Many possibilities: The three things I think of that can cause your feet to swell are 1) blood vessel problems, 2) heart problems, 3) thin blood; To help the symptoms you can elevate your legs and wear compression stockings (or even soccer socks you can get at KMart or WalMart). To check for and treat the causes you'll need to see a doctor, who might do bloodwork, heart tests, and/or blood vessel studies.
Many causes: There are plenty of causes of foot/ankle swelling. First, you need to make sure that you are not in acute pain, which could indicate a blood clot. If not, then it could be the venous system not emptying, added salts in foods, lack of calf strength when walking, diabetes, etc. Make an appointment with your local podiatrist who can better differentiate the swelling and recommend a plan for you.See 2 more doctor answers
