Whats the cause of swelling legs and what's the cure during preganancy?

Whats the cause of swelling legs and what's the cure during preganancy?

As a result, the blood pools in your legs and the fluid "escapes" into the tissues. Elevate your spirits and your legs during pregnancy as this is temporary and is "cured" by delivery. ...Read more

I am getting leg swelling during ovulation and menstruation.  BP and BW fine, my dr prescribed lasix.  Is this something I just have to live with?

Lasix or diet change: If you eat or drink a lot of sodium/salt daily, you can retain more fluids. Try cutting down on salt intake and checking labels for sodium. Drinking more water and walking can be helpful as well. Seeking medical attention if no improvement is wise. Lasix can be a short term fix but not usually necessary unless you have other medical issues. ...Read more

Need suggestion ?? during periods is there swelling and pain in legs she is taking hyponidde for hormones period is late by three days and lot of pain

Talk to her doctor: Hyponidde is an ayurvedic herbal supplement composed of the extracts of 10 plants. It is used primarily to lower blood glucose and as an antioxidant. If she has PCOS, this could help with the insulin resistance that is part of the syndrome. However, it is not working as well as you would wish for her and her doctor obviously needs to try a different regimen. Hope this helps. ...Read more
