Thanks for this question
Do you take any meds?
what is your height and weight?
Thanks for this reply
High salt diet and heat (I am assuming both took place on vacation) can both cause leg swelling
I am guessing that is what happened. It is simply fluid accumulation
I call it "vacation legs"
That is a trademark to dr. Phil :)
yes, being overweight absolutely causes it
it makes it harder for the veins to bring blood back up to the chest
no heart damage
I can tell because it worsens with bad diet, heat and when you are not eating right
Also you would be short of breath and it wouldn't just reverse on its own
Also you would be short of breath laying flat on your back
Yes the shortness of breath is the extra weight. It would get worse with leg swelling
please dont forget a positive rating

leg swelling in heart failure means more fluid means more SOB
