      Default Water/fluids in legs

      I believe that I am retaining water/fluids in the lower half of my body. I am drinking about a gallon of water a day, so I should be getting rid of it. It's not that time of the month. In fact, this seems to be an ongoing daily problem. My socks leave marks on my ankles all the time. What else can I do to move the water along? And, why would it be accumulating in my legs?

      My socks are digging into my ankles and have left significant marks. I find this upon waking up in the morning as well. I also have pitting of the skin.

      You could buy some soft fuzzy socks.

      has your diet changed? are you legs better are worse at certain times of the day? are you standing/sitting more?

      Nothing has changed. I noticed the sock indentations when I wake up or when I have them on all day. Legs stay about the same throughout the day. I just find it kind of odd that they are hold water around the lower calf/ankle area. One leg seems to pit more than the other.

      I was wondering this today. I just started wearing socks because it's getting chilly out and by the end of the day there are rings around my ankles.

      let me backup - i'm really sorry this has been happening. my mom has Lymphoedema (water retention) in both legs. I know it is frustrating.

      how long has this been going on? how much sodium are to taking in? does it help at all when you elevate your legs?
