Leg swelling commonly occurs when the veins in your lower limbs swell and leak fluid out of the vascular system into the soft tissue, where it must be mobilized by the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system gets overloaded, and swelling results from the fluid buildup. Some of the most common causes of leg swelling are:

  • Varicose veins
  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Lymph system blockage (lymphedema)
  • Blood clots
  • Heart and kidney issues Allergic reactions

Vein problems, particularly in the lower limbs, are the most common causes of leg swelling, aching, restless legs syndrome, nighttime leg cramping, and feelings of achy, heavy, or tired legs.

The main job of your veins is to send blood upwards to the heart. The valves inside the veins are designed to open, allowing the blood to go up before sealing tightly to prevent backflow.


Over time these valves do not close as tightly as they should, and the loose seal allows blood to fall downwards and pool in those veins. As the blood accumulates in these leg veins, they stretch out. This is what leads to the tortuous and protruding veins that are recognized as varicose veins.

Unfortunately, leg swelling is only one of the symptoms that problems like leaking vein valves can cause. Other common issues include:

  • Leg pain
  • Leg cramping
  • Tired legs
  • Visible superficial leg vein
  • Varicose veins
  • Heavy legs
  • Restless legs syndrome (RLS)
  • Changes in skin color around the ankles
  • Slow-healing sores

You have an increased risk of these issues if you’re female, are inactive, stand for extended periods, struggle with your weight, or take certain types of blood pressure or diabetes medications.


Some people have a genetic predisposition to vascular issues, which also increases the risk of leg swelling.
