Causes Swelling In The Calf And Ankle?
I am 24 years old. I have had swollen legs. It has been 2 days before. I have checked and my blood pressure is 160/100.
Hello, good morning Charir ..
Swollen feet can be caused by various possibilities, including:
injury, for example due to sprains, falls, collisions, etc. pregnancy hampered blood circulation in the legs, such as due to the position of my seat that is too long (for example on a long distance land so that sitting for a long time) venous insufficiency (blood can not move up from blood vessels in the legs to the heart) infection with the consumption of certain drugs for a long time, such as steroid drugs, blood pressure-lowering drugs, etc. heart, kidney, or liver disease
Regarding your blood pressure, this could be related to your complaints, such as suspicion toward heart disease. However, your blood pressure can also have nothing to do with complaints of swollen feet that you experience.
Seeing the many possible causes of complaints that you experience, we recommend that you see a doctor. Because, to be able to diagnose your complaint requires a direct examination, so we cannot confirm your illness just by consulting online. The doctor may recommend supporting examinations such as blood tests, ultrasound, X-rays, and so on, if needed.
While waiting for the check schedule, here are some ways you can reduce the swelling that you experience:
compress the feet with ice wrapped in a cloth or clean towel raise the foot slightly above the heart when lying down reduce salt intake avoid standing too long do light exercise to move the feet
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
