One would have. Swelling of the lower extremities. This could cause a heaviness type of feeling! Can cause legs to feel tired and achy.
Cause of swelling. Swelling can be temporary during pregnancy due to fluid overload. "dynamic insufficiency in which the lymph flow exceeds the transport capacity of the lymph glands". You should see a phlebologist- a vein doctor. You can be fitted for medical compression stockings, walk at least 30 minutes a day, elevate your legs whenever you can, and visit www. Phlebology.
