Hello

The most common reason would be bad veins in the legs.

Swelling and skin discoloration can occur over time.

You need to see your doctor right away.

You need an ultrasound of the veins and arteries in the legs.

Other things that can do this

hypothyrodism

Liver, kidney or adrenal disease.

Lymphatic disease.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
