Edema is when small blood vessels become “leaky” and release fluid into nearby tissues. That extra fluid can accumulate and cause nearby tissues to swell.
Edema can have a wide range of causes but medical care should be sought immediately to both reduce current symptoms as well as potentially diagnose issues far more dangerous.
Edema occurs when blood vessels in your capillaries leak fluid. The fluid builds up in surrounding tissues causing swelling.
Mild cases of edema may result from:
- Sitting or staying in one position for too long
- Eating too much salty food
- Premenstrual signs and symptoms
Edema can be a side effect of some medications, including:
- High blood pressure medications
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
- Steroid drugs
- Certain diabetes medications
Edema may be a sign of a more serious underlying medical condition such as:
- Congestive heart failure.
- Kidney disease
- Kidney damage
- Weakness or damage to veins in your legs
- Inadequate lymphatic system
