What causes swollen or painful foot/ankle?

Foot, leg, and ankle swelling is usually caused by accumulation of fluid in these parts of the body. The buildup of fluid usually isn’t painful and should not be a cause for concern, particularly if you have been standing or walking a lot. But feet and ankles that stay swollen or are accompanied by other symptoms such as pain could signal a serious health problem.

  • lymphatic obstruction, lymphedema causes blockages in the lymphatic system. A blockage in the lymphatic system causes tissues to become swollen with fluid, resulting in swelling in the arms and legs.

  • Blood clot in the leg: A blood clot is a clump of blood that’s in a solid state. When a blood clot forms in a vein of the leg, it can impair blood flow, leading to swelling and discomfort.

  • Venous insufficiency: Condition where the veins are unable to pump blood adequately, causing blood to pool in the legs.

  • Cirrhosis: This refers to severe scarring of the liver, which is often caused by alcohol abuse or infection. The condition can cause high blood pressure and poor circulation in the feet, legs, and ankles.
