Thanks for staying online.

I am posting my answer below-

Well, this should not be left ignored, and he can start with seeing Internist (internal medicine specialist) for a complete evaluation.

It could occur with venous insufficiency. This occurs due to defect in valves of deep veins of the legs.

he should benefit from avoiding long periods of standing or walking, and keeping legs raised while lying down. Also, he should wear compression stockings (available at pharmacies) during the day.

Other possible causes are kidney impairment, liver disease, heart failure, allergy, autoimmune disease.
This can also occur due to electrolyte imbalance, neuropathy or thyroid disorder.

He should also get an echocardiogram test done to rule out heart disease. Blood and urine tests for kidney function should also be done. ANA test for autoimmune disease should be done.
If required, then color doppler ultrasound can also be done for diagnosis.

Usually, the diagnosis is reached with help of detailed medical history , clinical examination and few investigations.

He should be seen by a doctor, and get it clinically evaluated. He would be advised treatment according to the cause.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
