The Cause Of Shortness Of Breath Accompanied By Swollen Feet?
. I want to ask, if the swollen foot is pressed, why not? And my father is also short of breath. Then my legs feel sore. Why is that?
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
The swollen foot condition referred to in this question is caused by a clinical condition known as edema. Edema is swelling of the tissue under the skin caused by excessive fluid in the tissue. Edema can occur in any organ, but edema will be more clearly seen on the legs, arms, ankles, or feet. Edema is not a diagnosis of disease, but rather a symptom of a disease, for example caused by:
1. Congestive heart failure
2. Kidney failure
3. Cirrhosis of the liver
If symptoms of swollen feet are accompanied by complaints of chest pain, heavy breathing difficulties, or shortness of breath on an examination immediately by a doctor for further treatment. The cause of this condition needs to be determined through directed medical interviews, physical examination, and other supporting examinations so that future treatment can be more specific.
That's all, hope you can help.
