Causes Of Swollen Feet And Sitting Too Long?
In the morning, my friend took the Jakarta Wonogiri bus, because it was very congested, so it took about 1 day. When he came down, he complained that his legs were swollen, probably from sitting too long. What is the cause, and how do you deal with it? Thank you, always success
With the history you tell can be caused by various conditions such as:
Deep vein obstruction
Lymph node blockage
Sitting for too long can cause blood flow disorders that can cause blood to clot. This clotted blood can cause blockage in the deep veins, especially the legs, which causes swelling and pain in the legs. A static or sedentary position without movement can also cause swelling of the legs due to impaired blood flow. Bacterial infections of the feet can also cause swelling. Blockage of the lymph nodes can also be a cause which can be caused by a parasitic infection transmitted by mosquitoes.
What can be done for a while is to do light activities such as leisurely walks to help improve blood flow. But if the swelling is accompanied by pain, it's a good idea to see a doctor to be sure what is being experienced. Because if there is a blood vessel blockage, it must be released immediately to prevent further unwanted things. Therapy will be adjusted by the doctor later.
I hope this helps.
