Patient : About a week ago my legs started to swell and have continued to swell. currently my thighs, legs, and feet are swollen to the point that I have to wear a size 42 waist instead of my normal 38. for the past 20 years I have been in sales which put my behind a desk, the only real exercise I got was the walk from the office to the car and from the car to the front door of my house, but three weeks ago I started a new job which demands that I walk and stand for 5-8 hr straight. Could this be the reason for the swelling or could it be more serious? Thanks
