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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

I want to know why are my feet swelling and stomach hurting?
