I've been elevating my legs overnight due to fluid retention when I wake in the morning the swelling has gone but now they've swelled up again!
Fluid retention: When you lie down and elevate your legs, the edema fluid leaves your legs and goes into your blood and you have increased urination at night. That's why your legs are less swollen in the am. During the day, water goes to the most dependent part of your body, your legs. At 29, you are not expected to have edema. See a cardiologist or a neprhologist to find out why you do. Good luck.

Can chronic venous insufficiency (fluid retention in lower legs) be reversed or it never reverses?
Venous stasis: Venous insufficiency can be controlled medically with compression and some simple preventive measures. Venous insufficiency, if deemed severe enough due to complications (like ulcerations), can be treated with surgery. Even with surgery, complete correction, from the pure sense of the word, is not the correct language. You would still have compression stockings recommended after the procedure.See 2 more doctor answers

Right heart strain: This is usually related to right heart strain from lung disease or from pulmonary hypertension (high pressure in the pulmonary vascular bed).
