Why do my legs swell at the end of the day?
Q. I would occasionally get some swelling in my legs. But now I notice it by late afternoon every day. I otherwise feel fine. Should I be worried?
A. It sounds like you have edema, swelling in your legs due to fluid in the soft tissues beneath your skin. This usually occurs when pressure from the fluid inside your veins is high, which forces water out of the blood vessels and into the surrounding tissues.
